My colleagues and I are pleased to announce three new publications on entanglement in fishing gear in North Atlantic right whales.

The papers show how fishing gear affects swimming and movement behaviours (Endang Spec Res), that the energetic costs and duration of entanglement are comparable to significant life-history events (pregnancy, migration, lactation; Ecol and Evol), and that this has the potential to affect female reproductive output (Ecol and Evol). Finally, we develop some tools for management to assess the drag and energetic burden of entanglements at the time of their detection (Mar Poll Bull).

Two of the three papers are Open Access, so please follow the URLs below.
