Using Grizzly Bears to Assess Harvest-Ecosystem Tradeoffs in Salmon Fisheries
(Public Library of Science, 2012-04-10)
<p>Implementation of ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM) requires a clear conceptual and quantitative framework for assessing how different harvest options can modify benefits to ecosystem and human beneficiaries. ...
Notochord development in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.): exploring molecular pathways and putative mechanism of segmentation
(The University of Bergen, 2014-03-07)
<p><strong>Background:</strong> A key feature of the vertebrate body plan is the repeated compartments made up of individual vertebra, blood vessels, peripheral nerves and muscle. The vertebral column comprises a series ...

The spatial distribution of seatrout spawning-grounds, microhabitat features and the resulting juvenile distribution were observed in a typical Western-Norwegian river. A total of 1870 squares within 187 cross-transects ...
Giving eyes to pelagic trawls: Acoustic and optical techniques measure behaviour, species, and sizes of fish in situ
(The University of Bergen, 2013-11-26)
Trawling, towing a cone-shaped net behind a moving boat, is a widespread fishing method both in commercial fisheries and to collect fish for scientific investigations. It combines filtering effect with herding behaviour ...
