This program investigates the physiology and behavior of marine fishes and invertebrates in an ecological context in order to gather important biological information (e.g., pertaining to habitat utilization, responses to changes in the environment, and interactions with fisheries) for commercially important and overexploited species. Such work ranges from in situ and in vivo studies using our physiology laboratory and experimental aquarium to at-sea research on fish movements and catch-and-release mortality. An important goal of such research is to increase the health and efficiency of marine aquaculture and outplanting operations.
