El primer artículo sobre cualquier tema marino fue publicado en 1963 y desde entonces ha venido aumentando el número de publicaciones marinas hasta llegar a 637. Este número representa el 27% de todos los artículos ...
By-catch associated with fisheries of Heterocarpus vicarius (Costa Rica) and Heterocarpus reedi (Chile) (Decapoda: Pandalidae): a six-year study (2004-2009)
(Journal of Crustacean Biology, 33(2), 198-209. 2013, 2013)
Growing concern about the quantity and diversity of by-catch species caught in the bottom trawling nets of crustacean fisheries led us to compare the quantity of by-catch recorded in Chilean and Costa Rican deep-water ...
