To track winter flounder, researchers look to ear bones
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire are turning to an unusual source —otoliths, the inner ear bones of fish—to identify the nursery grounds of winter flounder, the protected estuaries where the potato chip-sized ...
New model identifies eastern stream sections holding wild brook trout
A new model that can accurately identify stream sections that still hold suitable habitat for wild brook trout will help fisheries managers from Maine to Georgia find and protect habitat for this fish, which is an economically, ...
