Fish Conservation Zones (FCZs) have emerged as a popular management strategy in the Mekong Basin that allows people to both protect and harvest their local fish. FCZs are areas that restrict some or all fishing within their borders,

The lowest ever recorded index of abundance for delta smelt was reported earlier this year in the results from the 2014 California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) Fall Midwater Trawl (FMWT) of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, raising questions about the future survival of the species.

The hatchery system in California is currently facing a growing number of concerns about the role fish hatcheries should play in helping wild salmon and steelhead stocks. Many would argue that hatcheries are simply treating the symptoms, and not the causes, of salmon decline.

The year is 1871. California has been a state for just over 20 years and the country is mired in reconstruction following the end of the Civil War just six years earlier. Both the telephone and the light bulb have yet to be invented, and America’s population numbers less than 40 million people, while California’s population of approximately 100,000 is a fraction of today’s 38 million. A flood of pioneers is traveling to the Western United States, some using the transcontinental railroad that was completed less than two years prior. Recently elected President and Civil War hero Ulysses S. Grant, acting along with the legislature, has just created the Commission of Fish and Fisheries, the first government undertaking to conserve U.S. fishery resources, and one of the first acts of conservation in our nation’s history. #hatcheries   #history   #fisheries

We’d like to introduce you to one of the most powerful tools now available to fisheries research: the Adaptive Resolution Imaging Sonar (ARIS) camera. Based on technology initially developed for the military, this device is now used for investigating the detailed movement and behavior of fishes. Talk about a fisheries biologist's dream tool! #fisheries   #biology   #research

As a fish conservation physiologist, Christine Verhille studies how a fish's body works when challenged with a poor environment – like a fish doctor.

In honor of World Wildlife Day, we wanted to shine the spotlight on the world's largest salmonids: the taimen of Eurasia. Taimen can grow to six feet in length and inhabit the waters of Russia, Mongolia, China, Korea, and Japan.

When love is in the air for Sierra newts (Taricha sierrae), these otherwise land-dwelling amphibians know its time to hit the water. After adult newts reach about three years of age, they traipse overland in January and February to find their breeding streams in search of that special someone.

The major difference between a successful wildlife protected area and a “paper park” that exists in name only is enforcement of the protected area’s regulations. Recognizing this, FISHBIO recently conducted training for enforcement teams to patrol the new Fish #Conservation Zones (FCZs) we have helped establish in three villages in northern #Laos.
