Article
Marine ecosystems are reported to be contaminated by microplastics (MPs) (< 5 mm); however, the ecological mechanisms involved in the ingestion of debris by marine organisms are relatively unknown. By developing and optimising an appropriate protocol of gut digestion for fish species, this study explores a tropical estuarine environment to unriddle...
Article
The objective of this study was to analyse the feeding habits and trophic interactions between four oceanic predatory fish around the Fernando de Noronha Archipelago (FNA), Brazil, in the western equatorial Atlantic (3.86°S/32.42°W), internationally recognised as an environment of high economic and ecological value. For this purpose, biological sam...
Article
Microplastics are a relevant environmental concern in marine ecosystems due to their ubiquity. However, knowledge on their dispersion patterns within the ocean basin and the interaction with biota are scarce and mostly limited to surface waters. This study investigated microplastic contamination in two species of deep-sea cephalopods from the south...
Article
Microplastics (MPs; <5 mm) are a macro issue recognised worldwide as a threat to biodiversity and ecosystems. Widely distributed in marine ecosystems, MPs have already been found in the deep-sea environment. However, there is little information on ecological mechanisms driving MP uptake by deep-sea species. For the first time, this study generates...
Thesis
Full-text available
Worldwide, microplastics (MPs; 5 < mm) have been identified in most marine ecosystems and organisms. The large availability of this contaminant has raised the concern of scientists about the impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems. However, despite being frequently reported, some regions still lack studies on the characterisation of MPs contaminatio...
Article
Microplastics (MPs) are widely distributed in marine ecosystems, and their ubiquitous presence is raising concern, particularly about possible impacts on fisheries resources. In tropical regions, shellfish fisheries represent an essential source of income and subsistence for traditional communities, and adverse effects on these resources may have s...
Article
Full-text available
Tropical small-scale fisheries (SSFs) are characterised by their multidimensionality (fleets, gears, habitats, and species). As many targeted species move between habitats throughout their life cycle, managing coexisting fleets exploiting the same resource is challenging. However, the SSFs operating over multiple habitats target a variety of specie...

Haemulon plumierii, also known as white grunt, belongs to the family Haemulidae and it is distributed along the entire west coast of the Atlantic Ocean, being commonly associated with coral areas. It is considered one of the most abundant species in the family and is widely captured by artisanal fisheries, mainly through fish traps. However, despit...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Fishes of the Haemulidae family, commonly known as grunts, are a relevant portion on the artisanal fisheries, having significant socioeconomic importance in the Northeast of Brazil. They also play a crucial ecologic role on the trophic chain and in the nutrient’s distribution through different environments, besides that, they are one of the most di...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Shrimp trawling is one of the most important fisheries on the northeast Brazilian coast. Despite its great importance for the economic sector of the region, this type of fishing is also one of the most harmful to marine fauna given the high capture of accompanying fauna and the capture of juveniles. Thus, this study aimed to describe, quantify and...

The Feeding of Sphyraena barracuda was investigated through analysis of stomach contents of 124 individuals caught with rod and reel employed in trolling fisheries in Fernando de Noronha. The results are represented in prey lists and graphical representations of the Relative Importance Index (IRI), which shows a varied food spectrum, but with signi...
Thesis
Full-text available
This study aims to describe the patterns of distribution, feeding ecology and contamination by microplastics of the Achirus lineatus population inhabiting the Goiana estuary as a function of their spatial-temporal variation and ontogeny. The Goiana estuary was divided into three areas (upper, middle and lower) according to the salinity gradient and...

The plastic debris contamination, feeding ecology and habitat use of Cynoscion acoupa, an economically important species, were studied in relation to spatial, seasonal and ontogenetic aspects in a tropical estuary. The human impact on the environment was evident in the studied species, reflecting the high contamination of the diet of these fish wit...

Ecossistemas estuarinos são zonas de transição entre o rio e o mar. O estuário do rio Goiana (PE/PB) é uma reserva extrativista (ICMBio) que apresenta grande importância ecológica para uma diversidade de peixes e invertebrados que utilizam habitats distintos para realizar diversas atividades biológicas, como alimentação, reprodução, proteção e berç...

Este estudo avalia a influência espaço-temporal nos padrões de distribuição, ecologia alimentar e ingestão de microplástico da espécie Cynoscion acoupa (Pescada Amarela) ao longo da sua ontogenia, no estuário do rio Goiana, localizado no nordeste do Brasil. A área de estudo se trata de um estuário tropical, com altas médias de temperatura anual e p...

Lunar influence on the distribution of fish larvae, zooplankton and plastic debris in mangrove creeks of the Goiana Estuary, Brazil, was studied over a lunar cycle. Cetengraulis edentulus, Anchovia clupeoides and Rhinosardinia bahiensis were the most abundant fish larvae (56·6%), independent of the moon phase. The full moon had a positive influence...

Project
MicroplastiX is an international, multidisciplinary research project which will investigate the effects of weathering and degradation on plastic materials along with the consequent fragmentation into smaller items known as microplastics (MPs). The project will also explore how these processes affect MP distribution and dispersal on the marine environment, as well as effects on marine biota.
