Phys.org, Boothbay Register post Pellowe, Leslie’s fishery findings
Phys.org posted a University of Maine media release about the findings of Kara Pellowe and Heather Leslie. The marine scientists found that how people fish matters perhaps as much as the quantity harvested. Their study published in Ecosphere details the impacts of size-selective fishing on an economically important species of clam in Baja California Sur, Mexico. The information is critical for fisheries managers to design policies that balance short- and long-term ecological and economic goals, say the scientists based at the Darling Marine Center in Walpole, Maine. The Boothbay Register also posted the release.
