  • The secret life of the sea trout
    Sea trout, also known as brown trout, live complicated lives. Like salmon, they begin their lives in a river, hatched from eggs that were laid in small nests, called redds. As the young fish mature, they go through several developmental stages, all of which involve substantial physiological changes. The most important stage from this perspective is when the fish becomes a smolt, after about 2 years. Entering the smolt stage is like being given a passport out to the sea, because the physiological changes allow the fish to tolerate salt water.
  • Fish 'personality' linked to vulnerability to angling
    Individual differences in moving activity in a novel environment are linked to individual differences in vulnerability to angling, according to an experimental study. The study used novel, long-term observations of individual behavior in groups and authentic angling trials to analyze if behaviors predict the vulnerability to fishing in brown trout reared in traditional and enriched hatchery rearing environments. Based on the results, it can be predicted that fishing modifies the heritable behavioral traits of fish by favoring cautious fish.

ReefID's Most Wanted

most wanted - nudibranchs

ReefID's Most Wanted feature is a way to participate and have fun with ReefID's efforts to target and fill a specific area of the identifier.

 

Each quarter the wanted poster will display a specific inhabitant we'd like our users to focus on to fill the database. In addition to being posted in your personal galleries, a specific gallery will be set up to display most wanted submissions with links back to your individual profiles.

 

From these submissions, ReefID will select the entries that best help others identify what they see to add to the identifier as well as special submissions and photographers that will be displayed on the home page.

 

To participate, create a new adventure in your account, upload images and we'll do the rest.   All galleries created in the respective most wanted period will be inspected for possible entries and placed into the appropriate most wanted galleries. A note in the description field regarding what you think you have photographed and were you were when you too the picture is always helpful. 

 

If you are not a photographer but would still like to participate, help us identify.  Use the comments section underneath each image in the most wanted galleries to give us your best guess at what we're looking at (Comming Soon!).  A special shout out will be given to all that do their part.

 

Happy hunting!
