Their length ranges between 8 and 1039 m, their width between 1.5 and 86.5 m and their thickness between 0.4 and 3.25 m. They are siliciclastic beachrocks consisting of well-rounded gravels with a very coarse sand matrix, and they have a low proportion of bioclasts (&lt;1%). Cementation occurred in the swash zone and adjacent foreshore due to the precipitation of high magnesium calcite. From absolute dates (<sup>14</sup>C and optically stimulated luminescence) and anthropic artifacts, three phases of formation attributable to the Late Holocene were identified. Phase I corresponds to the warm and humid Roman Period and was recorded at a level below -3.75 m mean sea level (MSL). Phase II corresponds to the warm and arid Medieval Climate Anomaly and was recorded at +0.25 m to -2.5 m MSL. Phase III corresponds to the Little Ice Age and Industrial Period and was recorded at levels ranging from +0.5 m to -3.0 m MSL. Good temporal correspondence between the chronology of the cementation phases and warm and/or dry palaeoclimatic conditions can be established.</p> Carles Roqué Pau, Mario Zarroca Hernández, Rogelio Linares Santiago Copyright (c) 2021 Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://scientiamarina.revistas.csic.es/index.php/scientiamarina/article/view/1909 mar, 07 dic 2021 00:00:00 +0100 Occurrence and abundance of young mullet Mugil liza (Teleostei: Mugilidae) in the surf zone along the southern coast of Brazil https://scientiamarina.revistas.csic.es/index.php/scientiamarina/article/view/1910 <p>The southern population of&nbsp;<em>Mugil liza</em>&nbsp;is distributed from Argentina (47°S) to the state of São Paulo, Brazil (23°S). Young mullets use the estuaries as nursery grounds, and prior to recruitment into estuaries they use the surf zone as a temporary habitat. Based on 12 consecutive months of sampling, this study used generalized linear models (GLM) to analyse the relationships between environmental variables and the presence and relative abundance of young mullets in the surf zone adjacent to six major estuaries in southern Brazil (between 29°S and 33°S). Young mullets were present in all seasons over the sampling period, but the probability of occurrence was higher in winter and was associated with low temperatures. The water temperature alone explained more than half of the total deviance of the GLM models for presence (23%) and abundance (21%) of young mullets in the surf zone. Site 2 (Rio Grande) had lower temperatures in the colder months, the highest probability of occurrence of all collection sites and the greatest abundance (n=3402) of young&nbsp;<em>M. liza</em>, which represented 52% of the total of individuals (n=6493) caught among the six sites sampled.</p> Valéria Marques Lemos, Henrique Cabral, Stephanie Pasquaud, João Paes Vieira Copyright (c) 2021 Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://scientiamarina.revistas.csic.es/index.php/scientiamarina/article/view/1910 mar, 07 dic 2021 00:00:00 +0100 Small-scale fisheries in Madeira: recreational vs artisanal fisheries https://scientiamarina.revistas.csic.es/index.php/scientiamarina/article/view/1911 <p>Small-scale recreational and artisanal fisheries are popular activities in the Autonomous Region of Madeira, and to date no information is available on their impact on regional coastal ecosystems. Through fishers’ surveys and official registers of fish landings, we described and characterized these fisheries in Madeira, comparing artisanal and recreational fisheries. In 2017, artisanal boats landed 91 species in fishing ports, while recreational catches landed 58 species. The most frequent catches were&nbsp;<em>Dentex gibbosus</em>,&nbsp;<em>Phycis phycis</em>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<em>Pagrus pagrus</em>&nbsp;for artisanal fishery and&nbsp;<em>P. pagrus</em>,&nbsp;<em>Serranus atricauda</em>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<em>Diplodus</em>&nbsp;spp. for recreational fishery. Comparing the same techniques, artisanal fishery always showed higher catch per unit effort values than recreational boat fishery. Nevertheless, the low number of artisanal fishery boats in comparison with the recreational ones reflected the lower total landings of the artisanal fishery, which in 2017 were 62.3 t, compared with the 509.8 t estimated catches for the recreational fishery. Though the estimated recreational fishing data were based on surveys and thus subject to various biases, this activity seems to negatively affect coastal ecosystems and, together with artisanal fishing, exerts a combined pressure on targeted species. Improved legislation for both fisheries is essential for an appropriate management of resources.</p> Roi Martínez-Escauriaza, Francesca Gizzi, Lídia Gouveia, Nuno Gouveia, Margarida Hermida Copyright (c) 2021 Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://scientiamarina.revistas.csic.es/index.php/scientiamarina/article/view/1911 mar, 07 dic 2021 00:00:00 +0100
