Where the fish are spawning is of tremendous importance for the population (see our post) but also for the industry relying on it, especially since harvesting is often concentrated on fish that aggregate for to spawn. Climate change and harvesting are known to strongly affect the fish population with effect on the spawning location. In a recent paper (Langangen et al. Global Change Biology) we explore the question: “who is the culprit of spawning location change: Climate or fishing?”
The development of haddock embryos is highly impacted by oil exposure as discussed in a previous post. In a new study Sørhus et al. explored the link between transcriptional changes and developmental processes such as pattern formation and organogenesis. The question is to understand the abnormal development in fish.

Restriction site Associated DNA (RAD) sequencing is an effective methodology to produce genomic data at population level even in non-model organisms. It can be employed in SNPs discovery and genotyping, genotype-phenotype association mapping, linkage mapping, QTL analysis, hybridization and gene flow analysis, phylogeography, population genetics ...
