Infectious salmon anemia (ISA) - Facts, Fiction, and Management Strategies in North America

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: July 10, 2013, 15:00 - 16:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: Remote access only
Speaker(s): Kevin Amos, National Aquatic Animal Health Coordinator, NOAA
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, Aquaculture Science Webinar Series
Abstract:

Infectious salmon anemia (ISA) is a serious viral disease of farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) caused by the virus of the same name - ISAV. First diagnosed in Norway, this disease has caused millions of dollars of losses in farmed salmon throughout Europe, Chile, and the eastern seaboard of North America. More recently (2011) the ISA virus was purportedly found in wild Pacific salmon in British Columbia, Canada. This webinar will review the clinical characteristics of this disease, control measures that are implemented when farms have disease outbreaks, and the investigations and ongoing surveillance related to the 2011 "event" in British Columbia.

About The Speaker:

Kevin has over 36 years of experience as a fish health practitioner, researcher, laboratory director and administrator for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries). In October 2001, he was loaned by Washington State to NOAA Fisheries via an Interagency Personnel Agreement to serve as NOAA's National Aquatic Animal Health Coordinator. He continues in that role today. Major functions include serving as technical advisor for the development and implementation of a national aquatic animal health plan, technical advisor to NOAA's Aquaculture Program and Seafood Inspection Program on aquatic animal health, and consult on international trade issues as they relate to commerce of aquatic animals and their diseases. In March, 2006, Kevin retired from the State of Washington and has been employed by NOAA Fisheries since then as both a federal employee and contractor.

Conditioning Flatfish for Stock Enhancement: Global Progress and Pitfalls

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: July 11, 2013, 11:00 - 12:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA Fisheries James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory Conference Room, Sandy Hook, New Jersey (http://sh.nefsc.noaa.gov/)
Speaker(s): Michelle L. "Mick" Walsh (NOAA/NMFS Office of Sustainable Fisheries - Domestic Fisheries Division)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, The Howard Laboratory, NOAA Fisheries, Northeast Fisheries Science Center, James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory, Sandy Hook, New Jersey
Abstract:

A successful stocking program requires survival of released fish, and to achieve this, released fish must be able to adjust to their new environment, feed successfully, and avoid predation. However, hatchery-reared flatfish (e.g., flounders, halibuts, soles) often exhibit irregular swimming, feeding, and cryptic (burying and color change) behavioral patterns compared with wild conspecifics, and these behavioral "deficits" are assumed to lead to increased predation risk once fish are released. Conditioning flatfish before release may offer fish an opportunity to refine these behaviors, which may increase survival and subsequent recruitment to the fishery. Examples of conditioning strategies that have been applied in the hatchery include providing sediments in rearing tanks, live feeds, or predator cues. Providing winter flounder, Pseudopleuronectes americanus, with live worms during rearing conformed post-release feeding performance closer to that of wild fish. Strategies also can be applied at the release site, such as short-term release into acclimation cages before full release. Danish scientists have been cage conditioning reared Atlantic turbot, Psetta maxima, before release since 2004, and this practice has resulted in lower post-release mortality. Stocking facilities in Japan have found that cage-conditioned Japanese flounder, Paralichthys olivaceus, have significantly higher fishery recapture rates and enhanced burying and feeding skills. In both Denmark and Japan, studies indicate that intensive researcher recollection efforts near release sites may disproportionately sample weaker fish. In the US, evidence suggests that cages themselves attract predators so cage designs have been modified in recent years. Successful conditioning of stocked fish before release can increase post-release recapture; however, choosing a location that can be monitored adequately may be just as important if the success of a stocking effort will influence future efforts.

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: July 11, 2013; 13:00-14:00 Eastern Time [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: Remote Access Only
Speaker(s): (Economist and Social Science Coordinator, NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program)
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: NOAA National Marine Protected Area Center
Abstract:

How do we know what impacts MPAs and other coastal management tools are having on the lives of people who live nearby? This information is critical for management decisions, but often lacking. The Global Socioeconomic Monitoring Initiative for Coastal Management (SocMon) works through regional and local partners to conduct community-based socioeconomic monitoring. Partners collect household and community level data about dependence on coral reef resources, perceptions of resource conditions, threats to marine and coastal resources, and support for strategies such as marine protected areas. Take a look at some of these monitoring exercises and learn about findings, lessons learned and challenges facing effective use of human dimensions data as part of coastal resource management.

Utilizing Social Media to Understand Human Interaction with Extreme Media Events: The Superstorm Sandy Beta Test

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: July 16, 2013, 13:00 - 14:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ SSMC2, Room 14316
Speaker(s): Arthur Cosby, Professor/Director, Social Science Research Center, Mississippi State University
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, NWS
Abstract:

Starting in the summer of 2011, a group of scientists, research associates, and graduate students at the Social Science Research Center (Mississippi State University) began to develop a suite of software applications that were intended to create a capacity to track and analyze a wide array of social media platforms. The goal was to have a system that would assist researchers in using social media as a source of scientific data for exploration and investigation. The result of this endeavor was the Social Media Tracking and Analysis System (SMTAS). The system became fully operational in the fall of 2012 and was beta tested with Superstorm Sandy. SMTAS has collected over 4.5 million tweets and an estimated 400,000 images of the storm and its aftermath.

Changing inshore water temperatures, thermal and seasonal preferences of species in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island, over five decades

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: July 18, 2013, 11:00 - 12:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA Fisheries James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory Conference Room, Sandy Hook, New Jersey (http://sh.nefsc.noaa.gov/)
Speaker(s): M. Elisabeth Henderson, University of Rhode Island, Graduate School of Oceanography
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, The Howard Laboratory, NOAA Fisheries, Northeast Fisheries Science Center, James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory, Sandy Hook, New Jersey
Abstract:

With increasing ocean heat content, species' ranges are expected to shift poleward as they track species-specific preferred water temperatures. The Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO) Fish trawl survey of Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island, USA, provides a unique weekly time series of fish and invertebrate abundances over the last five decades (1959 - present). The data are based on weekly bottom tows from two stations in the bay. Sea surface temperatures in Narragansett Bay have increased by > 1.6C since 1959. Change in water temperatures and phenology for 26 common fish and invertebrate species in the GSO time series were analyzed with single-parameter quotient analyses to assess the magnitude and patterns of temporal changes. Preliminary results indicate that some species tend to follow preferred temperatures while others are more guided by seasonal timing.

About The Speaker:

Lis Henderson (B.A. Colby College) is an M.S. student in Jeremy Collie's lab at the University of Rhode Island's Graduate School of Oceanography (GSO). Lis is the current research assistant for the GSO Fish trawl survey in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island. Her research uses data from the survey to examine changes in the temperature preference and seasonal timing of dominant fish and invertebrate species in the bay since 1959.

Zooplankton Composition in a Strong, Persistent Upwelling Region - What can it tell us?

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: July 18, 2013, 12:00 - 12:30 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ Central Library, SSMC3 2nd floor (1315 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Rachel E. Fontana, Ph.D., Knauss Fellow, NOAA OAR Formulation and Congressional Analysis.
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, MOAA Knauss Fellowship
Abstract:

Understanding variability in zooplankton abundance and composition are important aspects to elucidating changes in ocean conditions. Time series of zooplankton data span the west coast of North America; however, large regional gaps in data collection exist for the strong, persistent upwelling area located from southern Oregon to north-central California. We investigated a zooplankton time series collected within the Gulf of the Farallones-Cordell Bank region from 2004 to 2009, which is located within this persistent upwelling zone. Zooplankton abundance and species composition differed significantly throughout this time series. We found a close linkage between this zooplankton time series and changes in basin-wide, regional, and in situ environmental variables. Understanding zooplankton abundance and composition in the Gulf of the Farallones-Cordell Bank region will assist with elucidating changes in seabird populations and may assist with future year-to-year predictions of general ecosystem health.

About The Speaker:

Rachel Fontana is currently a Sea Grant Fellow within the Formulation and Congressional Analysis Division of NOAA's Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research. She completed her B.Sc. degree in marine science and biology at the University of Miami in 2003. After leaving Miami, she worked as the education coordinator on a tall ship in Long Island Sound, then went on to teach marine education on Catalina Island. She received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis in March of this year. Her graduate work focused on physical ocean processes and their influence on plankton and seabird foraging in a strong, persistent upwelling region.

Underwater Underworlds: What stories do underwater caves hold?

Add This OneNOAA Science Seminar to your Google Calendar
Seminar Date and Time: July 18, 2013, 12:30 - 13:00 Eastern Time Zone [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: NOAA HQ Central Library, SSMC3 2nd floor (1315 East-West Hwy, Silver Spring, MD 20910)
Speaker(s): Sepp Haukebo, Knauss Fellow, NOAA Office of Education
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, MOAA Knauss Fellowship
Abstract:

nchialine caves (meaning near the sea) persist throughout coastlines around the world and provide cave diving scientists a unique opportunity to investigate the ecological and biogeochemical secrets of the underworld. Previously believed to be devoid of life, these lightless ecosystems have been found to harbor a range of organisms from cave fish to living fossils like remipedes. Because species are often endemic to a single cave system the exploration of new anchialine caves has led to the discovery of novel species, orders, and even a new class of cave-adapted critters. Recently anchialine cave research has been used to constrain historic climate records, elucidate the role of chemoautotrophic bacteria in coastal aquifers, and characterize the effects of ocean acidification on coral reefs. Throughout this presentation we will discuss the past, present, and future directions of anchialine cave research around the world.

About The Speaker:

Sepp is currently a Knauss Fellow with NOAA's Office of Education. He recently defended his thesis on the characterization of dissolved organic carbon in an anchialine cave in the Yucatan, Mexico. Throughout his studies at Texas A&M University in Galveston his field research took him from the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan to the mountains of northern Mexico to the deserts of west Texas. His interest in education stems from his experiences as an informal field biology instructor and a formal surfing professor at Galveston College.

Climate Change and Boreal Forest Fires: What does the future hold?

Seminar Date and Time: July 23, 2013, 10:00-11:00 AKDT [Check U.S. Time clock for your local time]
Seminar Location: Online Access Only
Speaker(s): Mike Flannigan, University of Alberta
OneNOAA Science Seminar Sponsor: OneNOAA Science Seminar, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment & Policy
Abstract:

Wildland fire is a common occurrence resulting from interactions between climate/weather, vegetation, and people. Our climate and associated day-to-day weather may be changing rapidly, due to human activities that may have dramatic and unexpected impacts on regional and global fire regimes. Existing studies suggest a general overall increase in area burned and fire occurrence, although there is a lot of spatial variability, with some areas of no change or even decreases in area burned and occurrence. The onset of climate change has been rapid and more significant in boreal regions as compared to other parts of the world. Fire activity has already been increasing in many parts of the boreal regions, and many studies suggest that this trend will continue and may even intensify. There is a potential for positive feedback as boreal ecosystems contain 30-40% of the world's terrestrial carbon, with much of this in peatlands that may be vulnerable to increased fire activity and fire severity (depth of burn).

A warmer world means a longer fire season, more lightning activity, which is responsible for most of the area burned in boreal ecosystems, and drier fuels that would contribute to fire occurrence and spread. In terms of fire management, enhanced fire danger rating systems that accurately predict the spatial and temporal variability in fire danger can help us adapt to a warmer world.

The four lower dams on the Klamath River impede salmonid passage and have created water quality problems on the Klamath River. The Secretary of the Interior, in collaboration with NOAA, conducted an analysis of biological, ecological and socioeconomic effects of removing the dams. This presentation describes the socioeconomic portion of that analysis, events leading up to the Government's decision to consider dam removal, and the current status of this contentious issue.
