Fish and Fisheries is an interdisciplinary journal covering fish biology, fisheries and aquaculture. We are renowned for our high-profile studies, adopting a broad approach to the field.

We publish major synoptic papers, syntheses and meta-analyses from leading experts on current research and emerging trends, focusing on fish palaeontology, molecular biology and ecology, genetics, biochemistry, physiology, ecology, behavior, evolutionary studies, conservation, and the social, economic, and policy aspects of fisheries.

We invite proposals for Guest Edited Special Issues in Fish and Fisheries! Please refer to the proposal guidelines here for more information.

Introducing Our New Editors

We are delighted to introduce Professor Anna Kuparinen as our newest Editor of Fish and Fisheries. Anna joins our Fish and Fisheries Editor team that includes Bronwyn Gillanders (who joined the team in early 2022), Gary Carvalho and Robert Arlinghaus.

Anna Kuparinen is a professor in Aquatic Environmental Sciences at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. Her research focuses on eco-evolutionary dynamics, fish life histories, and dynamics of aquatic ecosystems and food webs. Her key research question deal with Allee effects, population resilience and recovery ability as well as human impacts on aquatic organisms, on their populations as well as on the structure and functioning of the entire  ecosystems. Her research utilizes simulation and statistical modelling techniques. Anna did her Masters in mathematics and PhD in biometrics at the University of Helsinki, Finland.
Professor Bronwyn Gillanders

Bronwyn is an ecologist undertaking research in freshwater, estuarine and marine systems. Her research has a strong focus on fish and cephalopods, and addressing environmental issues that are of relevance to protection of coastal environments and management of commercial fisheries. She is currently based in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Adelaide. She completed her PhD at the University of Sydney, Master of Science at the University of Otago and Bachelor of Science at the University of Canterbury.





Trees for fishes: The neglected role for phylogenetic comparative methods in fisheries science

  •  16 November 2023

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Phylogenetic comparative methods (PCM) are widely used in ecology but rarely applied in fisheries science. PCM combines information about evolutionary relatedness and ecological trade-offs among traits, and could improve foundational information used by fisheries biologists (e.g., relationships among size, growth, and reproductive traits) and fisheries managers (biological reference point proxies). I introduce PCM using easy-to-use software, and illustrate improvements relative to conventional linear models when estimating natural mortality rates using size and growth information.
