Further Analysis of Clockwise Loops and Anticlockwise Loops Observed in a Stock-Recruitment Relationship

Kei Tanaka, Naoki Suzuki, Kazumi Sakuramoto
Loop-shaped trajectories are commonly observed in the stock-recruitment relationship (SRR). A mechanism that explains why the loops emerge in SRR has been proposed, and the aim of this study was to validate this mechanism using 62 stocks that live in the waters around Japan, the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization area, and elsewhere. We discuss the relationship between the age at maturity and the slope of the regression line adapted for the SRR data. Further, we discuss whether or not the...

Fish Pond Effluent Effect on Physicochemical Properties of Soils in Southern Guinea Savanna, Nigeria

John Jiya Musa, Pius Olusegun Olufemi Dada, Johnson Kayode Adewumi, Otuaro Ebierni Akpoebidimiyen, Elijah Tsado Musa, Martins Yusuf Otache, Seun Yusuf
This work studied the effect of fish pond wastewater, proximate and mineral analyses of the fish feeds from commercial fish ponds on receiving soils in the southern Guinea Savanna ecological zone of Minna, Nigeria. The study con-ducted during the dry seasons of the years 2015 and 2016 between January and May. Four sets of soil samples were collected at varying distances from the various fish ponds an

Observation of Humpback Whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) in the Waters Adjacent to the Chukotka Peninsula with Comparisons to Historical Sighting Data

Vladimir V. Melnikov
This paper presents data from shore-based and limited boat observations of the seasonal distributions of humpback whales in waters adjacent to the Chukotka Peninsula from 1994 and 2012. Under favourable ice conditions, humpback whales were spotted off the coast of the Chukotka Peninsula as early as the end of May. During the summer, humpback whales remained dispersed in the coastal waters of t

Detection of Horizontal Transfer of Housekeeping and Hydrocarbons Catabolism Genes in Bacterial Genus with Potential to Application in Bioremediation Process

Edmo Montes Rodrigues, Fernanda de Souza Freitas, Tatiane de Paula Siqueira
In silico analysis can be useful to infer about the horizontal gene transfer (HGT) as well as to deduce about the evolutionary relations of catabolic genes. In this study, we performed the analysis of two housekeeping genes (fabD and rpoD) and two catabolic gene

The True Mechanism That Controls the Stock-Recruitment Relationship

Kazumi Sakuramoto
I propose a mechanism that controls the stock-recruitment relationship (SRR), which should replace traditional SRR models. The difference between the traditional SRR models and the model proposed herein is whether or not a density-dependent effect is assumed. The new mechanism elucidates the following: 1) why clockwise loops or anticlockwise loops are commonly observed in an actual SRR, and 2) the age at maturity (not a density-de

Sargassum, Gracilaria and Ulva Exhibit Positive Antimicrobial Activity against Human Pathogens

Amrit Kumar Mishra
Bacterial resistance to pharmaceutical drugs is on rise, which emphasizes the need for screening of new drugs from natural resources. Seaweeds from the marine ecosystem are important source of bioactive compounds making them one of the major subjects for screening of various pharmaceutical drugs. So here, we assessed the bacterial growth inhibitory functions of four seaweeds Sargassum wightii

Knowledge of Climate Change and the Perception of Nigeria’s Coastal Communities on the Occurrence of Sargassum natans and Sargassum fluitans

Lucette Adet, Godwin Nmeka Nsofor, Kehinde Olufunso Ogunjobi, Brahima Camara
Climate change effects threat life on earth especially economically poor areas. Among them is noticed the shifting of the algae species Sargassum natans and Sargassum fluitanss seaweeds from the Brazilian coast to new areas along the West African coastline. Their occurrence along the Nigerian

Are 20% B0, 20% Bunfished, and BMSY Valid as Reference Points for Fisheries Resource Management?

Kazumi Sakuramoto
The aim of this paper is to discuss the validity of 20% B0, 20% Bunfished and BMSY as reference points for managing fisheries resources. I reanalyzed eight stock-recruitment relationship (SRR) sets of data that were analyzed by Myers et al

Clockwise Loops and Anticlockwise Loops Observed in a Stock-Recruitment Relationship

Kei Tanaka, Naoki Suzuki, Kazumi Sakuramoto
Loop-shaped trajectories are commonly observed in the stock recruitment relationship (SRR). A mechanism has been proposed that explains why the loops emerge in SRR. The aim of this study is to validate the mechanism using data for the stocks of 24 fish species that live in the waters around Japan. The following three questions are examined: 1) whether or not loop shapes are detected in SRRs for all 24 stocks;
