Bay mud Mudflats are coastal wetlands that form when mud is deposited by tides or rivers.
Jeppe Kolding The diverse nature of internal and external threats and fishery attributes in inland fisheries indicates that the development of long-term solutions to governance issues will require interaction among multiple disciplines and actors.
Pollution, habitat alteration, invasive species, and hydropower development are widespread problems that are often external to threats imposed by inland fisheries, but greatly impact fishery productivity.
Within inland fisheries, challenges of overfishing, equitable access, conflict, and an overall lack of political will to sustain inland fisheries at the regional, national, and international policy levels serve to pressure the sector further.
Power dynamics, governance systems, and regulations play a role in determining the perspectives from which solutions to these issues are viewed, and thereby the perspectives from which they are defined as a success.
Promoting transdisciplinary research in inland fisheries can support development of successful governance solutions by providing relevant insights to identify and inform these perspectives.
Here, we offer examples of redefined governance problems and potential strategies for addressing them using transdisciplinary research approaches. We conclude by offering suggestions for improving transdisciplinary research in inland fisheries.CORAL REEF ECOSYSTEM DYNAMICS - How does “nutrient” cycling work on the reefs?
- How do these systems respond to changes in “nutrient” levels? A look at cichlid fish in Lake Victoria. This is the first in what I hope to be a series of postings.
In the series I hope to accomplish two things, establish that evolution is an active branch of mainstream science and that there is indeed an overwhelming amount of evidence in favor of the idea of evolution. Like the earlier seagrass studies, the new NOAA study concentrates on the distribution of SAV and provides only limited information on densities or species composition.
The SJRWMD long-term program includes information on seagrass densities and identification as well as SAV distribution. Determining the Density of Plastics 1) Introduction ⦁ a) Purpose: Determine density of different plastics ⦁ b) Hypothesis: If density is related to the ratio of mass to volume, then density can be calculated by using the formula D=M/V.
