Read the latest news from the Marine Conservation Ecology Lab
What happens if #fishermen lower #gillnets deeper past the water's surface? Researchers tried it in Pakistan and far fewer #dolphins ended up as #bycatch. #SDG14 @jjkiszka @ecology_lab @WWFPak @UN_SDG @IISD_SDGs @IISD_ENB
#ICYMI Read about the research:
Setting nets below the surface means fishermen catch almost 80 percent fewer dolphins, whales
Lowering gillnets into the water can lower the chances of tuna fishermen accidentally hauling in dolphins and whales, according to new research led by...

IWC Bycatch Expert Panel members @jjkiszka @UmairUshahid new paper in #AquaticConservation shows 79% reduction in #cetaceanbycatch using subsurface gillnets rather than surface. BMI discussing scope for further trials @wwfPak #IOTC. Collaboration is key!
Setting the net lower: A potential lowâcost mitigation method to reduce cetacean bycatch in drift gillnet fisheries
Bycatch is the most significant threat to marine megafauna (sea turtles, marine mammals, elasmobranchs, seabirds) worldwide, and the leading cause of ...
So excited to share our latest paper published today in #AquaticConservation on cetacean bycatch mitigation in drift gillnets in the Indian Ocean. Our study reveals that subsurface settings reduce cetacean bycatch probability by nearly 80% @WWFPak https://t.co/tJJa6nic0L
Another great day in Biscayne bay to study bottlenose dolphins and their prey! Photos taken under NOAA permit
The dolphins in #BiscayneBay are an important piece when it comes to understanding the bay as a whole 🌊
@jjkiszka & the @ecology_lab are studying these amazing creatures to see what we may be able to uncover 🐬💙

There are 150 dolphins living in #BiscayneBay but scientists don’t really know how well the population is doing. @fiuenvironment is part of the ongoing mission to collect important data. Never more urgent bc of the declining health of the bay. 2nite @WPLGLocal10 530pm @jjkiszka
RT @CascadiaRes: New paper out on #killer #whale predatory scarring rates on mysticetes off the US West Coast led by Enrico Corsi (now PhD student @ecology_lab!) Congrats Enrico, and link to the paper: https://buff.ly/3msVE6t https://buff.ly/3gwLVIF
