Baby fish 'smell their way home'

The ones that get home preserve the unique 'ethnic' make-up of their tribe ?and so continue the process of evolving into separate new species." Ho...

Fish growth changes enhanced by climate change

Dr Thresher said slower growth in fishes has been correlated with a variety of life history traits ?from higher mortality to reduced food availability and increased age or smaller size at sexual maturity. He said comparisons of historical and modern oceanographic data indicate temperatur...

Batfish to the rescue!

...ctive to spear-fishers, while they depend as young fishes on coastal mangroves which are in decline in many areas. "Indeed, the resilience of inshore GBR reefs may be closely tied to the fate of mangroves and their suitability for batfish recruitment." Batfishes may be one of the last intact herbivore...

Mobile DNA part of evolution's toolbox

...ere LF stands for lobe-finned fishes--the group of fishes that gave rise to both the coelacanth and terrestrial vertebrates. The LF-SINE was very active in the evolutionary lineage leading to the terrestrial vertebrates, but much less active after animals moved onto land. Humans have 245 recognizable copi...

When the hawksbill's numbers were larger they ate more toxic sponges. Now however, the results suggest the turtles are eating more non-toxic sponges. Accordin...

The earliest fishes lacked paired fins, similar to the modern-day lamprey - a species of jawless fish with a dorsal fin and tail but no side fins - considered by biologists to share many features with the ancestor of all vertebrates. "The emergence of paired appendage...

Convergent evolution of molecules in electric fish

"Most fish have both genes in the muscle, but as the new electric organ was evolving, the sodium channel--by being ...

African amphibians make extreme parental sacrifice: The skin off their backs

Earlier observations of another species in the same order of amphibians foreshadowed the latest discovery. In the 1990s, the same ...

Thin tough skin, slow-growing gills protect larval Antarctic fish

"The way that we've understood how adult polar fishes survive has been based on their use of these antifreeze proteins to lower the freezing point of their internal fluids," said lead author Paul A.
