A predominant concern following oil spills is toxicity to aquatic organisms. However, few data are available on effects in deep‐sea cold water fishes. This study had three major objectives. First, investigate the relative sensitivity of the deep‐sea species Anoplopoma fimbria (sablefish) to acute effects of three aromatic compounds (toluene, 2‐meth...

Objectives: • Determine the LC50s of three petroleum hydrocarbons to the Sablefish based on the static renewal test. • Assess if sablefish exhibit sensitivity within the observed range for pelagic species Conclusions: • Results show, that of the three chemicals, phenanthrene was most toxic followed by 2-methylnaphthalene and toluene • Observed LC50...

The recent invasion of the red alga Heterosiphonia japonica in the western North Atlantic Ocean has provided a unique opportunity to study invasion dynamics across a biogeographical barrier. Native to the western North Pacific Ocean, initial collections in 2007 and 2009 restricted the western North Atlantic range of this invader to Rhode Island, US...
