Researchers summarize the current knowledge, identify data gaps, and provide future research directions for addressing microplastics effects in commercially valuable North American fishery species.
This case study explores how to add value to regional ocean condition forecast information by bringing awareness to the processes that govern decision-making and outcomes within the system.
Crew members on the Delma Ann haul in a crab pot and hit it against a banger bar to force the crustaceans out of the pot. Because of a fisherman's suggestion, researchers are looking for ergonomic banger bars.
This case study finds a need to transform short-term regional ocean condition forecast information into useful data products for a range of end users, considering their perceptions of uncertainty and risk associated with these forecasts.
