Fishing can make fish populations more sensitive to oil spills

Many heavily fished fish stocks are dominated by young and small fish. The reason is simple: the chance to reach old age is small. If the fisheries selectively target large fish, the dominance of young and small fish becomes even larger. Such skewed age and size distributions can make the fish populations more sensitive to detrimental effects of oil spills.

But the big surprise is that chimpanzee beds are cleaner than most human beds”, says Adriana Hernandez-Aguilar from the CEES.
