How to grab reader’s attention towards my paper?

Writers are preparing an essay to readers. It is Important for a writer to consider readers needs and always give them an interesting paper. A reader would start reading an essay with the aim that he/she will get to know more about the topic. A poor opening will discourage the reader and they will stop reading if it's not worth reading. So it is very important for me to prepare an interesting essay for my academic assignment. I have referred many websites and books to know how to prepare an interesting paper but I didn't get any good tips. Please help me to prepare a good paper. When you write about subjects you are passionate about, it implies that you'll have the capacity to write each day. In case you're extremely passionate about the things that you're writing about, at that point you'll probably write certainly, in the knowledge of the fact that it's something that you think about. If it's something that doesn't have much interest to you, at that point you'll delay and put off writing and you won't do it as regularly.

The writer is by nature a dream of the writing world

Writer as known as is a person who is engaged in writing books, articles, stories etc as a professional author. Writers see the world differently. Writers have various fields to work. They communicate their ideas by writing the words in various styles and techniques. And they convey message to the humans through a single paragraph or with an entire novel. A successful writer has literary skills, imagination, ability to work to the deadlines, time management skills and self disciplined, ability to work for long hours, editing skills and enthusiasm.

A writer is a creative activity. Much writer work across genres. Writer is main activity is daily base of writing and they are towards most important way of improve their writing skill. Writers produce various types creative writing such as novels, magazine, short stories, and essays as well as various reports and news articles that may be of interest to the public. Writers most mentioned about public they are the writing style and writing method is very interesting and full of knowledge in the subject.

Writers at public relation firms produce biographies, press releases and magazine and article marketing materials for the clients so therefore writers published in the society and media. Many freelance companies hire writers for essay writing service, article writing, content or copy writing. There are many custom essay writing service (https://essayacademia.com) that need writer for essay writing. Now a day’s most of the people depend on online writing service from Google because of the best writers available from online .So most of the college student depends to writing service because quality content and get good marks for academic writing tasks. I am say that writing skill is not everyone but it is a few people of skill.

Some of the writers work for part time. A web content writer is specialized in writing publishable material for websites and writer is doing part time job or home base job for anywhere. It is a wonderful goal. They are also called as content developer. The specific tasks of a web content writer include researching, essay writing, rewriting, and publishing content and article writing. And also the writers get on job training before their professional work starts for writing centre. Writers must be able to write effectively so that they can convey feeling, emotion and communicate and conversation, and thinking with readers.

Impact factor

​Howard Browman, Editor-in-Chief of ICES Journal of Marine Science (IJMS)​

The journal impact factor serves as an indicator of the relative importance and influence of a journal in its particular field. Impact factor information is released every year by Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports, which contains citation information for around 11,000 science and social science journals.

The latest impact factor (2016) for the ICES Journal of Marine Science (IJMS) is 2.76. This figure is calculated by adding together the number of citations made in 2016 to articles published in the IJMS during 2014 and 2015 and then dividing the result by the total number of articles published during those two years. The 2016 JiF is an all-time high for IJMS.

The IJMS is currently receiving about 550 submissions per year of which about 30% are accepted for publication.

‘The probability of one fish being caught is called ‘catchability’. In simple words, if there is a single pass of a trawl net through an area and one tenth of the monkfish is removed, then the catchability of monkfish is 0.1. Several factors may influence catchability, three important ones are the probability of a fish being in the area, the efficiency of the gear, and the probability of one fish present in the area of being caught.

Catchability is a helpful term in fishery science. It is widely employed in the evaluation of stock status, it is the parameter used to calculate the absolute abundance of a stock from abundance indices. Although historically, catchability has been assumed to be constant, it is known that it can increase or decrease over time. New approaches allow incorporating time-varying fishery catchability, which will make it possible to have a more precise evaluation of the stock status.’​

Fisheries genetics

​Naiara Rodríguez-Ezpeleta of the Working Group on Application of Genetics in Fisheries and Mariculture (WGAGFM) and co-organizer of the EuroMarine Foresight Workshop on the Application on Population Genomics to Fisheries Management.”​


'The genetic information stored in each of the cells of the individuals of each species can provide crucial information for understanding processes that cannot otherwise be studied or provide more cost-effective measurements than traditional methods. 

Species identification can be achieved using barcoding: the amplification of a short variable DNA fragment that, compared against a reference database, is used for taxonomic assignment. This technique is particularly relevant for morphologically similar species (e.g. black and white anglerfish), early developmental stages (eggs and larvae), semi-digested specimens (e.g. stomach contents) or animal pieces (e.g. shark fins).

Stock delineation can be achieved using population genetics, which relies on the analysis of genetic markers that are variable within a single species (microsatellites and SNPs are the most widely used ones). If a large number of these markers are conserved within a group of individuals, it may indicate reproductive isolation​, either due to distance (isolation by distance) or reproductive behavior (homing) for example.

Origin assignment can be achieved by typing on the individual to be assigned a subset of informative markers from the ones identified during the stock delineating process. This is particularly relevant for identifying the origin of a landed catch or to assign individuals to a stock in the case of mixed-stock fisheries (e.g. salmon caught at sea can be assigned back to its river of origin).

Adaptive genetic changes can be identified by studying those markers that present the same variants within individuals that inhabit similar conditions and that are not the result of isolation by distance. (e.g. same genetic markers are responsible for the adaptation to warm temperatures in cod inhabiting the east and west Atlantic).

There are many other fishery assessment questions to which genetics can provide relevant information. Recently, two methods that promise to revolutionize the field are 1) the close-kin mark recapture method, which potentially allows estimating fisheries independent abundances from genetic data and 2) the analysis environmental DNA (eDNA), which is DNA released into the environment in the form of skin, blood, mucus, for example, which can provide information about the species inhabiting a given environment without needing to see or sample them.'

Marine Spatial Planning

​Jacqueline Tweddle, member of the Working Group for Marine Planning and Coastal Zone Management​ (WGMPCZM)​, along with group chairs​ Andrea Morf and Matt Gubbins


'Marine Spatial Planning is a process for deciding how best to use our marine space. For centuries, the sea has been free and open to everyone, but now there are more demands for different and exclusive uses as well as requirements to ensure we maintain a healthy marine environment.  Marine spatial planning (sometimes referred to as marine or maritime planning or, when close to land, coastal zone management)‎ is a process through which recommendations are made on the use of marine space, allocating space with the goal to balance environmental, societal and economic needs. This negotiation and decision making process is to be open and transparent, engaging with “stakeholders” affected by those decisions. The resulting plans usually consist of several parts: a section showing how the sea is used today and what issues need to be addressed, a general vision on the future use of the sea, and what uses to prioritise where.

‎Often there are gaps in our knowledge about what the optimum use of our marine spaces should be to achieve societal objectives and ensure sustainable uses of our seas. We are in an intensive phase of developing our knowledge and methods to understand the consequences of planning decisions. The ICES Working Group on Marine Planning and Coastal Zone Management is working on the development of knowledge and methods for this purpose - in close collaboration between science, society and policy makers across different disciplines and seas, from the Baltic over the Arctic and the Atlantic to the Mediterranean and beyond.'

​Silvana Birchenough Chair of the the ​​​Benthos Ecology Working Group (BEWG)​ and the Steering Group on Ecosystem Processes and Dynamics (SSGEDP)​​​​


'The concept of 'benthos is used to refer to organisms or a community of organisms that live on, in, or near the seabed, also known as the benthic zone. Depending on their size, they can be classified into macrobenthos (greater than 1 mm), meiobenthos (less than 1 mm but greater than 0.1 mm) or microbenthos (less than 0.1 mm). There are also different types that can be classified into zoobenthos (all benthic organisms) and phytobenthos (including benthic diatoms and macroalgae or seaweed). 

Benthic organisms are important, as they play a key role in marine ecosystems, helping to deliver many ecosystem goods and services, ranging from biodiversity, remineralization of nutrients, long-term carbon storage and provision of food for high trophic levels. These are just some main activities fueled by the benthic system. There are many more.'
