An updated life history scheme for marine fishes predicts recruitment variability and sensitivity to exploitation

Colleen Petrik, Fernando González Taboada, Charles Stock & Jorge Sarmiento
Aim: Patterns of population renewal in marine fishes are often irregular and lead to volatile fluctuations in abundance that challenge management and conservation efforts. Here, we examine the relationship between life history strategies and recruitment variability in exploited marine fish species using a macroecological approach. Location: Global ocean. Time period: 1950-2018. Major taxa studied: Bony and cartilaginous fish. Methods: Based on trait data for 244 marine fish species, we objectively extend the established Equilibrium-Periodic-Opportunistic (E-P-O)...
