Biological characteristics and dynamics of stocks and fishery are considered for pacific herring in the South-Kuril fishing district on the data of research surveys and fishery statistics for 2014–2021. Features of the herring wintering and the rates of linear growth and maturation are analyzed. The stock recovery on the shelf of southern Kuril Isl...

Sablefish is an endemic species of the North Pacific. Its range extends from California Peninsula, along the Pacific coast of the US and Canada to Aleutian Islands and further, along the Pacific coast of Kamchatka and the Kuriles to the central part of Honshu Island. They dwell also in the Bering Sea and southeastern Okhotsk Sea. Sablefish are the...

The shelf and continental slope of the western Bering Sea, being among the most productive areas of the Far-Eastern Seas of Russia, became exploited by commercial fishery half a century ago, after introduction of 200-mile exclusive economic zones in 1977 and relocation of the Russian fishing fleet from the eastern Bering Sea to its western part. In...

The dynamics of the Atka mackerel stock in the Olyutorsky–Navarin area in 1994–2019 is inferred from bottom-trawl surveys, fishery statistics, open-access NOAA data, and the results of simulation by the method of virtual population analysis. After the period of low stock in the mid-1990s, the abundance of the Atka mackerel group in the area increas...

Atka mackerel Pleurogrammus monopterygius is one of the mass species of fam. Hexagrammidae that inhabits the boreal and subarctic waters of the North Pacific and forms two large populations in its western and eastern parts. Reproductive range of the eastern, Aleutian population extends from the Gulf of Alaska, along Aleutian Islands to Commander Is...

... Most (93%) of the sablefish were caught as a bycatch during grenadier's longline fisheries in 2010-2020 in the western Pacific (Zolotov 2021). It has recently been suggested that the possible total catch of sablefish in the western Pacific could be increased up to 400 mt, 300 mt of which could be caught on specialized longline fisheries (Zolotov 2021). The increased intensity of sablefish longline fisheries could encounter problems of depredation, as in the eastern Bering Sea, where killer whales and sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) actively feed from the skates (Perez 2006). ...
... Marine organisms often live in relatively stable temperature environments and are very sensitive to temperature changes. Because this will directly affect its survival, metabolism, reproduction, development, and immune response, which will lead to the migration of habitats of marine life near Scotland, especially herring and mackerel [8][9][10][11][12]. is is undoubtedly a crisis for a large number of small Scottish fishing companies. Due to the lack of advanced refrigeration technology and ships, coupled with the changes in the location of the fish stocks, it will greatly increase the difficulty of fishing and face the danger of insufficient fuel. ...
