Life-history studies of species discarded in fisheries are a low priority, particularly those of age and growth estimation. Consequently, almost everything is unknown about such species despite their having been caught as bycatch over the long term. In this study, age estimates were obtained by using the vertebrae of round stingrays (Urobatis halle...

Plastic particle occurrence in the digestive tracts of fishes from a tropical estuarine system in the Gulf of Cali-fornia was investigated. A total of 1095 fish were analysed, representing 15 species. In total 1384 particles of plastic debris were recovered from the gastrointestinal tracts of 552 specimens belonging to 13 species, and all consisted...

Given the high degree of uncertainty on key parameters associated with age and growth of shortfin mako and other pelagic sharks, the Shark Working Group (SHARKWG) of the International Scientific Committee for Tuna and Tuna-like Species in the North Pacific Ocean (ISC), have highlighted the need to take action to standardize protocols for sampling c...

... The global impact of plastic pollution has a detrimental effect on flora and fauna, social well-being, and community health [6]. To provide some examples, the waterproof nature of mismanaged plastic makes it an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes, leading to the spread of disease, and the breakdown of plastics into macro-and microplastics can affect organisms through bioaccumulation and, more visibly, entanglement [7,8]. The scale and damage imposed by mismanaged plastic waste are already causing problems worldwide due to the durability and inexpensive nature of plastics and the changes in social practices of consumption [9,10]. ...
