Perspectives on ecosystem-based approaches to the management of marine resources
Introducing Aquatic Biology
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2007-10-31)
The Inter-Research Science Center (IR) journals Marine Ecology Progress Series (MEPS) and Aquatic Microbial Ecology (AME) have been receiving increasing numbers of high-quality manuscripts that are principally biological, ...
Early ontogeny of the Atlantic halibut Hippoglossus hippoglossus head
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011-04-04)
An ontogenetic sequence of Atlantic halibut Hippoglossus hippoglossus larvae, reared in intensive culture conditions, was cleared and stained and histologically processed to determine normal cranial chondrification for ...
Light Primes the Escape Response of the Calanoid Copepod, Calanus finmarchicus
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012-06-27)
The timing and magnitude of an escape reaction is often the determining factor governing a copepod’s success at avoiding predation. Copepods initiate rapid and directed escapes in response to fluid signals created by ...
Grazing Rates of Calanus finmarchicus on Thalassiosira weissflogii Cultured under Different Levels of Ultraviolet Radiation
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011-10-18)
UVB alters photosynthetic rate, fatty acid profiles and morphological characteristics of phytoplankton. Copepods, important grazers of primary production, select algal cells based upon their size, morphological traits, ...
Foraging behaviour of larval cod (Gadus morhua) at low light intensities
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011-02-13)
The ability to forage at low light intensities can be of great importance for the survival of fish larvae in a pelagic environment. Three-dimensional silhouette imaging was used to observe larval cod foraging and swimming ...
The three-dimensional prey field of the northern krill, Meganyctiphanes norvegica, and the escape responses of their copepod prey
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2010-02-24)
In the north Atlantic, Meganyctiphanes norvegica feeds predominantly on copepods, including Calanus spp. To quantify its perceptual field for prey, and the sensory systems underlying prey detection, the responses of tethered ...
Applications of sensory biology in marine ecology and aquaculture
Politics and socio-economics of ecosystem-based management of marine resources
Chemoreception in the salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis: an electrophysiology approach
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2007-12-13)
The search for effective and long-term solutions to the problems caused by salmon lice Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Krøyer, 1837) has increasingly included biological/ecological mechanisms to combat infestation. One aspect of ...
