Disease relevance of Fisheries

  • Sera from 58 odontocetes taken in fisheries off Peru in 1993 to 1995 and from 24 cetaceans stranded along the Spanish coast of the Mediterranean in 1997 to 1999 were tested for the presence of Brucella species antibodies in competitive and indirect ELISAS (cELISA and iELISA) [1].
  • Ciguatera fish poisoning and fisheries development in the South Pacific Region [2].

High impact information on Fisheries

  • Fisheries. Population of origin of Atlantic cod [3].
  • 'Back-to-the-future' (BTF) is an integrative approach to a restoration ecology of the oceans that attempts to solve the fisheries crisis [4].
  • Rotenone and piperonyl butoxide (PBO) mixtures, so-called "synergized" rotenone, are invaluable in fisheries management where they are used to protect the habitat of endangered, native species and promote desirable gamefish populations [5].
  • There are only two kinds (organochlorine and organophosphate) of totally six pesticides (DDTs, dieldrin, chlorpyrifos, fenitrotion, fenthion and prothion) that have been detected from the fisheries products in this study [6].
  • Seagrasses in the Great Barrier Reef region, particularly in coastal habitats, act as a buffer between catchment inputs and reef communities and are important habitat for fisheries and a food source for dugong and green turtle [7].

Associations of Fisheries with chemical compounds

  • The paper presents basic data on astaxanthin adsorption from fisheries wastewater to fish scales [8].
  • Currently, approximately 1501 food items with Royal Society of Chemistry/Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food food codes have been allocated a vitamin K1 value, and a further 282 new recipe codes are included in the database [9].
  • In a project currently in hand at Pira International on behalf of the UK Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, some of the problems which arise when migration testing food and beverage cans with the food simulant 3% (w/v) acetic acid solution are being investigated [10].
  • Consequently, fisheries account for about 1.2% of global oil consumption, an amount equivalent to that burned by the Netherlands, the 18th-ranked oil consuming country globally, and directly emit more than 130 million t of CO2 into the atmosphere [11].
  • The four largest Swedish lakes, Vänern, Vättern, Mälaren, Hjälmaren, host important commercial fisheries for char, salmon, trout, whitefish, vendace (cisco), perch, pike-perch, pike and eel, i.e. highly diverse biological resources [12].

Gene context of Fisheries

  • In recognition of these issues, the UK Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF) is funding a number of projects aimed at providing greater mechanistic understanding of the links between food and cancer, in order to offer detailed advice to the public [13].
  • Higher densities used were above those recommended by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF) [14].
  • The Great Lakes Fisheries Specimen Bank: a Canadian perspective in environmental specimen banking [15].
  • The MS patients originated predominantly from communities where commercial fisheries were prominent, whereas a weaker association was found with wood-processing plants [16].
  • Several seed extracts show promise for use as proteinase inhibitors during production of surimi, the intended commercial product of massive fisheries such as Pacific whiting or merluza [17].
