Sharks can live a lot longer than researchers realized

web_85111-50391“Many sharks are living much longer than was thought, according to a major review of studies on these important and often endangered top predators. This means that many estimates of how threatened particular species are — and decisions about whether they can be fished safely — could be based on faulty data.
Scientists usually estimate how old sharks are by slicing through their spines and counting distinctive pairs of bands seen inside, which are often assumed to show age in the same way as the rings of a tree.”

sardinha“Recordando e adaptando as palavras de Denis Hayes na cerimónia de abertura dos festejos do primeiro Dia da Terra em 1990: como é que depois de tantos desafios ultrapassados, tantos progressos, tantas batalhas ganhas, chegamos ao ponto de perder a guerra, e com ela o planeta?”. As palavras de Denis Hayes retratam bem os desafios que se enfrentam na conservação de recursos naturais, em especial quando se tratam de recursos economicamente importantes. É este o caso de uma espécie marinha famosa entre nós, a sardinha. Muita informação tem chegado sobre esta espécie, mas muitas são as questões e conceitos que merecem ser esclarecidos antes de uma busca pelo entendimento, ainda que parcial, do que se passa com a sardinha.”

Big Investment in Little Fish in the Mid-Atlantic

peixe“Forage fish, the small species that support the marine food web, won new safeguards along the U.S. Atlantic coast on Friday. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries) announced a final rule directing fishery managers to create science-based measures, such as catch limits, before fishing can begin in federal waters (from 3 to 200 miles offshore) on more than 50 species not already targeted by commercial fishermen. The rule will also help ensure a steady supply of forage fish for the many predators that feed on them, such as striped bass, bald eagles, and humpback whales, and increase security for businesses that depend on healthy ocean systems.”

FishingRights

“Decades of overfishing in European waters have taken their toll. Four out of every ten fish stocks are outside safe biological limits, producing fewer fish than if we managed them sustainably. But allowing European fish stocks to grow could deliver an additional 2 million tonnes – enough to feed 89 million citizens, support 20,000 more jobs, and generate additional profits of €1bn. The British government has played a role in failing to realise this potential by setting fishing quotas a total of 1,423,000 tonnes above scientific advice since 2001.
It’s time to start treating overfishing with the seriousness it desserves.”

A new study by researchers at the University of British Columbia updates previous estimates published in 2013 and provides a deeper explanation of why fish are expected to decline in size. “Fish, as cold-blooded animals, cannot regulate their own body temperatures. When their waters get warmer, their metabolism accelerates and they need more oxygen to sustain their body functions,” said William Cheung, co-author of the study, associate professor at the Institute for the Ocean and Fisheries and director of science for the Nippon Foundation–UBC Nereus Program.”

However, because of their late maturation and low birth rate, their population growth rate are relatively low. This means that it can take a long period of time for the shark population to recover its numbers. Sharks are facing challenges such as overfishing and international trading of shark fin, and it is important for shipping companies to acknowledge and understand this issue as they play a big part in the trading of shark fin.”
