Research Focus


  • Our lab focuses on: quantitative fisheries ecology, population dynamics, and fisheries stock assessments and management.

  • We investigate the interactions between commercial fishing, ecological variables and dynamics of fisheries populations and communities.

  • Our goal is to develop sustainable fisheries and ecosystem-based management approach, using an interdisciplinary approach of fisheries biology, ecology, management policy, decision making theory, mathematical and statistical modeling, and computer simulations.
