Feds fund Western research to restore Atlantic salmon in Lake Ontario:

You think some of your goals are a long shot. For the Atlantic salmon, and the millions of dollars and health of the lake riding on its back, survival is the long shot....


Science, Public Belief — and the Inescapable Lag Time Laid Bare By U.S. Study:

Bryan Neff at Western University has just studied how climate change will make chinook salmon have heart attacks, but he knows for a scientific fact that predicting bad consequences of climate change brings a backlash...


Aquaculture (Fish Farming): Myths and Reality:

Humans have a long history of eating fish, at least 40,000 years based on archaeological evidence. Since that time, fish consumption has grown to support a massive food industry, which is globally worth more than 200 billion dollars a year. But where do all these fish come from...


Study Shows Climate Change Could Lead to Mass Heart Attacks in Salmon:

Nutritionists often praise salmon as a super food in the fight against heart disease. But the fish renowned for its Omega-3 fatty acids is at risk of dying off from heart attacks brought on by climate change, say scientists at Western University...


Why Salmon Might Disappear From the Menu:

Americans eat more than 624 million pounds of salmon a year, and about a third of it comes from the Pacific Ocean. But will we (and our grandchildren) be fishing for or dishing up wild Pacific salmon in 50 years...


Sniffing Out Relatives, Bluegill Sunfish Use Self-Referencing to Recognize Kin:

Many animal societies involve highly promiscuous mating behavior, making it potentially complicated for individuals to recognize and preferentially help their relatives. Researchers have now shown that offspring of promiscuous male bluegill sunfish compare the odor of nest-mates to their own genetically determined odor...


Citation Inflation:

Many journals – and the authors who publish their novel data and analyses in them – rely on “impact factors” as a gauge of the importance and prestige of their work. However, a new analysis turns up subtle ways that journals can game the system to artificially inflate that impact factor...
