The University of Crete announced that Dr. Daniel Pauly, has been granted an honorary doctorate from the Department of Biology, School of Applied Sciences and Technology.

Harmful fisheries subsidies are leading to more fishing vessels chasing fewer fish, resulting in adverse environmental and societal impacts.

Contrary to what is stated in biology textbooks, the growth of fish doesn’t slow down when and because they start spawning. In fact, their growth accelerates after they reproduce, according to a new article published in Science.

The amount of macroalgae (the group to which seaweed belongs) covering coral reefs is not always an accurate indicator of human disturbance.

Celebrating some of the research that the Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries researchers has undertaken on the iconic marine creature with a tusk (tooth, actually) on its head — the narwhal.

Dennis Rabeling's observation of the short-snouted seahorse (Hippocampus hippocampus) species, was citizen community science platform iSeahorse's 10,000th observation.

Most of the ‘paper parks’ - or MPAs that fall short of safeguarding marine biodiversity - are located in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Researchers confirmed what was already known: jellyfish eat bigger prey as they grow, which means they also occupy a higher position in the food web as they grow. They also found that some of the concentrations of ‘healthy fats,’ increase as jellyfish grow. These changes might be influenced by their diet, and as they feed on bigger prey with higher levels of fatty acids, the jellyfish accumulate more of these fatty acids.

Let's celebrate women in science today and everyday!
