Description

We conduct research on issues relevant to fish population dynamics, fisheries management, and ecosystem dynamics with a focus on the South Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico regions. Research opportunities exist in the application of quantitative methods, laboratory experiments, and field surveys to problems in population and community ecology; stock assessment; and fisheries. We are particularly interested in the incorporation of ecosystem considerations such as eutrophication, climate change, food web dynamics, and effects of invasive species, into fisheries model and associated management advice. Associates are invited to develop new research projects or join current ones. Examples of current and past research topics include the ecological and economic effects of hypoxia on shrimp fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico; environmental effects on menhaden recruitment; population models of protogynous, snapper-grouper reeffish; quantitative relationships between stock productivity and life-history characteristics; models of fish bioenergetics; and the effects of fishing on evolution.
