Fisheries of the United States, 2009

Each year NOAA Fisheries compiles key fisheries statistics from the previous year into an annual snapshot documenting fishing’s importance to the nation. The 2009 report provides landings totals for both domestic recreational and commercial fisheries by species and allows us to track important indicators such as annual seafood consumption and the productivity of top fishing ports. These statistics provide valuable insights — but to fully understand the overall condition of our fisheries, they must be looked at in combination with other biological, social, and economic factors of ecosystem and ocean health.

Pesticide Mixtures: Deadly Synergy in Salmon

Poisoned waters a toxic brew for salmon
March 04, 2009 - Feature Story ,
This graph shows the hypothetical difference between the effects of an individual pesticide and pesticide mixtures on salmon brain function, as indicated by the degree to which the pesticide(s) inhibit function of an important enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE). As seen here, the potential neurobehavioral toxicity of the pesticide mixture can be additive or, if greater than the sum of its parts, synergistic.
