FISHING PRESSURES AFFECT TROPICAL AND TEMPERATE REEFS DIFFERENTLY

FISHING PRESSURES AFFECT TROPICAL AND TEMPERATE REEFS DIFFERENTLY

A recent study published in Ecology and Evolution, an international team of researchers focused on what can happen to ocean ecosystems when fishing pressure increases or decreases, and how this differs between tropical to temperate marine ecosystems. The team, led by Elizabeth Madin, researcher at the Hawai’i Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) in the University of Hawai’i (UH) at Manoa School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST), found ecosystems do not respond universally to fishing.
