Journal Article
Caveen, A., Chikwama, C., Botterill, K., Jones, E., Jones, E., Botterill, K., …Gray, T. (2020). Pay Gaps Between Domestic and International Fishers: an Economic or Ethical Issue?. Maritime Studies, 19(1), 15-27. https://doi.org/10.1007/s40152-019-00133-6

Through the global market for maritime labour, multi-national crews now work on fishing vessels which were once serviced by domestic crews only. The remuneration and working conditions for non-domestic crews are causing concern, with allegations of u...

Exploring the Causes of Red Vent Syndrome in Wild Atlantic Salmon (salmo salar) From Coastal Waters Around Scotland (2018)
Thesis
Kent, A. Exploring the Causes of Red Vent Syndrome in Wild Atlantic Salmon (salmo salar) From Coastal Waters Around Scotland. (Thesis). Edinburgh Napier University. Retrieved from http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/Output/1508522

In 2005, Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) migrating to the United Kingdom exhibited swollen, haemorrhagic vents, symptoms not previously recorded. The condition was latterly termed Red Vent Syndrome (RVS), and subsequently observed across the North A...

Non-native Bullhead in Scotland: Molecular and Morphological Identification and Parasite Links with Native Fauna (2018)
Thesis
McLeish, J. Non-native Bullhead in Scotland: Molecular and Morphological Identification and Parasite Links with Native Fauna. (Thesis). Edinburgh Napier University. Retrieved from http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/Output/1253308

The arrival of a non-native species to has the potential to shape native communities by influencing ecological interactions such as predation, foraging, competition and disease transfer. A designation of invasive is applied to an introduced non-nativ... Read More about Non-native Bullhead in Scotland: Molecular and Morphological Identification and Parasite Links with Native Fauna.

Using stable isotopes to assess the distribution of reproduction by migratory and resident Salmo trutta within river systems: some complicating factors (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Briers, R., Campbell, R., Galt, K., Walters, M., & Holmes, J. (2017). Using stable isotopes to assess the distribution of reproduction by migratory and resident Salmo trutta within river systems: some complicating factors. In Sea Trout Science and Management

Understanding the distribution of spawning resident and migratory trout in a river system is important for fishery management. In most cases this information is lacking or only partial, and mostly derived from surveys of breeding adults. Stable isoto...

Turning the Tide: How Blue Carbon and Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) Might Help Save Mangrove Forests (2014)
Journal Article
Locatelli, T., Binet, T., Kairo, J. G., King, L., Madden, S., Patenaude, G., …Huxham, M. (2014). Turning the Tide: How Blue Carbon and Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) Might Help Save Mangrove Forests. AMBIO: A Journal of the Human Environment, 43, 981-995. https://doi.org/10.1007/s13280-014-0530-y

In this review paper, we aim to describe the potential for, and the key challenges to, applying PES projects to mangroves. By adopting a “carbocentric approach,” we show that mangrove forests are strong candidates for PES projects. They are particula...

The Fish Community of an East African Mangrove: Effects of Turbidity and Distance from the Sea (2008)
Journal Article
Huxham, M., Kimani, E., & Augley, J. (2008). The Fish Community of an East African Mangrove: Effects of Turbidity and Distance from the Sea. Western Indian Ocean journal of marine science, 7(1), 57-67. https://doi.org/10.4314/wiojms.v7i1.48254

Mangroves are often reported as nursery grounds for fish. Fish may enter mangroves in order to avoid predators, but may not need to do so if turbidity provides a sufficient predator refuge outside the forest. This study assessed the effects of turbid...
