thresher (Alopias superciliosus) is a pelagic shark distinguished by its long, whiplike upper caudal lobe, large eyes, and deep horizontal grooves above the gills (Bigelow and Schroeder, 1948).
Using hook depth as a tool to selectively target pelagic species has been used extensively in commercial fisheries for decades, with most of the effort focused on bigeye
tuna, Thunnus obesus, and albacore, Thunnus alalunga, (Suzuki et ah, 1977; Sakagawa et ah, 1987).
MANILA - The annual meeting of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission wrapped up Thursday without reaching significant commitments from "fishing powers" to cut their bigeye
It is not prohibited to catch the ordinary Thresher shark, although the Bigeye
Thresher cannot be retained or landed.
The cypress minnow Hybognathus hayi, bigeye
chub Hybopsis amblops, and crystal darter Cystallaria asprella were considered extirpated by Smith (1979), but since have been sporadically collected in Illinois (Warren and Burr, 1989; Burr et al.
Bluefish, shark, swordfish, wild sturgeon, opah and bigeye
tuna carry a proportionately large mercury burden as well.
ICCAT to maintain annual bigeye
tuna fishing quota until 2015
takes on a new client and a host of new marketing opportunities with Xentury City.
IATTC Senior Scientist Kurt Schaefer will lead the team aboard the Yolanda L in trials that have promise to reduce the amount of bigeye
caught in nets.
Most yellowfin and bigeye
tuna stocks cannot sustain increased fishing and in certain regions, such as die Pacific, catch limits and other conservation measures arc needed to give the Jipecies a chance to recover.
Meanwhile, Asda has relabelled all its Smart Price and standard-tier canned tuna with the species name 'skipjack' after taking steps to ensure no bycatch species, such as bigeye
tuna, were being caught.
Randy Parda of West Yarmouth caught a 231-pound bigeye
and yellowfin tuna are already in serious trouble, and even skipjack, once thought of as virtually limitless, is now in decline, being caught at a rate that is not sustainable in the long term.

Jacob Lowenstein of Columbia University and his colleagues used genetic analyses to identify the species offish in 100 samples of sushi tuna from 54 restaurants and 15 supermarkets in New York, New Jersey and Colorado, tracing the samples to bigeye
, bluefin and yellowfin tunas.
