Newswise: The makeup of mariculture: FSU researchers examine global trends in seafood farming

The makeup of mariculture: FSU researchers examine global trends in seafood farming

Florida State University

When Florida families settle down to enjoy a seafood dinner they may not realize the main dish wasn’t freshly caught in the nearby Gulf of Mexico, but rather farmed off the coast of Panama. The process of farming seafood in the ocean, known as mariculture, is a growing trend yet little is known about the trajectories of its development.

Newswise: International Team Studies Effects of Oxygen Loss on Fish

International Team Studies Effects of Oxygen Loss on Fish

SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry

An international team of scientists is launching a study into the effects of marine hypoxia – oxygen loss that is linked to climate change – on fish species and their food webs in three locations around the world. The team will study fish from Lake Erie, the Baltic Sea and a Gulf of Mexico estuary to assess how exposure to hypoxia affects fish and their habitat. The scientists will also investigate the economic impact of the changes, which is sometimes difficult to pinpoint.
