435 pages




A 2005 symposium was held at the University of Washington to address concern about the status of spiny dogfish, the first shark species known to recover from over-exploitation. From that gathering, 34 papers here look at distribution and abundance; age, growth, and reproduction; ecology and physiology; and fisheries, assessment and management, and conservation. Among specific topics are toward the rehabilitation of an under-appreciated species, movement patterns of spiny dogfish within the Strait of Georgia, differences in growth over a latitudinal gradient in the northeast Pacific, determining the gastric evacuation rate for immature spiny dogfish, occurrence in recreational fisheries in the US and implications for stock assessments, and a sequel of the directed fishery for in the 1980s off the west coast of Ireland.
