USGS research frontiers on fish at the American Fisheries Society Conference

ies management strategy for the Atlantic horseshoe crab fishery. This innovative management strategy used information from another USGS study indicating that managing horseshoe crab resources in the Delaware Bay has the potential to improve red knot population status. Red knots are an at-risk shorebird that dines upon the horseshoe crab's eggs during migration. The new management strategy has suggested a harvest limit for horseshoe crabs that takes shorebird needs into account. Most horseshoe crab harvest today comes from the fishing industry, which uses the crab as bait, and the pharmaceutical industry, which collects their blood for its clotting properties. This collaboration is the first to quantitatively connect the two species, and also to provide recommendations for management based on their connection. This study, An adaptive multispecies approach to managing the horseshoe crab fishery in Delaware Bay, will be presented on Sept. 5 at 6:00 p.m. in room 4E.

Free reign of the stream suits fish of the West: Scientists know that fish need to move freely in search of better habitat for feeding, refuge and reproduction and that what is considered "good" habitat changes throughout the life cycle of a fish. This movement represents the path a fish takes over its lifetime from one point to the next, and the ability to freely move among these points is critical for the survival of both individual fish and other organisms that benefit from their presence in the ecosystem. Physical, chemical and biological factors that restrict movement along this path can have negative consequences. By looking at several charismatic fish species in the western U.S., researchers can better characterize why "free reign" of the stream is so essential to the survival of native fish throughout the west.
