Editor rating: 7 / 10Carlos Conte-Junior –– This article is relevant in the area of the fish consumer. There are few studies about the nutritional value of different fishes with the potential to produce in the word.
Section Editor rating: 6 / 10James Reimer –– New species of a poorly known group of marine animals from an understudied marine region, the Arctic.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Albert Gabric –– The work on coralline responses to CC impacts such as acidification is weighted towards tropical ecosystems. This paper provides a useful counterbalance in the literature and as Dr Buscher has noted provides a window on the future of all coralline ecoystems.
Section Editor rating: 6 / 10James Reimer –– An excellent summary and new data on a species group of geopolitical importance and conservation controversy.
Editor rating: 6 / 10Ginger Rebstock –– This article shows how much can be learned about an animal's underwater behavior using technology developed for the consumer market (albeit modified to function underwater and enable a programmed start time). It indicates exciting possibilities for future studies.
Section Editor rating: 6 / 10James Reimer –– I am relying on reviewer 1's comments for this rating.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Antonina Dos Santos –– As I say in the decision letter, it is important for any ecological studies in the region s.l. and also for taxonomy studies around the world. It has the quality of describing a new species using integrative taxonomy.
Editor rating: 8 / 10James Reimer –– Scientific work examining the efficacy of shark deterrents - this work is sure to catch the attention of a wide range of people both in marine biology and the general public.
Editor rating: 7 / 10John Berges –– This is an important demonstration that we can reconcile synoptic measurements (e.g. satellite measurements of ocean color) with local and microscale measurements of individual phytoplankton species (an autonomous vehicles and digital holography).
Editor rating: 7 / 10Joseph Pawlik –– The ecosystem role of sponges is only now being recognized, particularly on Caribbean reefs. This paper is a useful contribution to this area of research.
