Offshore wind farms form an important part of many countries strategy for responding to the threat of climate change but their development can conflict with other offshore activities. Static gear fisheries targeting sedentary benthic species are par...

The mandibles of caridean shrimps have been widely studied in the taxonomy and functional biology of the group. Within the Palaemonoidea the mandibles reach a high level of structural diversity reflecting the diverse lifestyles within the superfamily...

Evaluation of different concentration doses of eugenol on the behaviour of Nephrops norvegicus (2015)
Journal Article

Eugenol was tested for use as an anaesthetic on Nephrops norvegicus at three different concentrations (300, 600, 900 μL/L). Monitoring included the time taken to reach each sedation stage. Sedation stage was assessed by passive behaviours and reactio... Read More about Evaluation of different concentration doses of eugenol on the behaviour of Nephrops norvegicus.

The North Sea is one of the most economically important seas in the world due to productive fisheries, extensive oil and gas fields, busy shipping routes, marine renewable energy development and recreational activity. Unsurprisingly, therefore, the u...

The generic level, systematic relationship in Palaemoninae was inferred from analyses based on the mitochondrial 16S rDNA and nuclear Histone (H3) genes, primarily focussed on the genera Palaemon and Palaemonetes, as previous morphological and molecu...

The behaviour of planktonic animals remains poorly understood due to the difficulty of observing them in situ without influencing their behaviour. Here we review experiments on the behavioural responses of Northern krill, Meganyctiphanes norvegica (a...

Lepidophagous (scale-eating) blue-striped fangblennies (Plagiotremus rhinorhynchus Bleeker 1852) are often found sympatrically with the bluestreak cleaner wrasse (Labroides dimidiatus Valenciennes 1839). They have some resemblance to the juvenile L.... Read More about Interactions between fangblennies (Plagiotremus rhinorhynchus) and their potential victims: fooling the model rather than the client?.
