Our research relies on three, complementary approaches: experiments, theoretical modelling, and statistical analyses of observational data from the wild.
We have been running a joint seminar series with the Aquatic Behaviour Ecology, Theoretical Ecology, and Fisheries & Aquaculture Ecology groups. In 2013 this was merged with the departmental seminar.
Evolutionary Fisheries Ecology is a research group that brings a strong evolutionary dimension to the study of fisheries and fisheries science.
Most research in EvoFish is currently related to fisheries-induced evolution, but we are also more generally interested in fisheries ecology and evolutionary ecology.
Ranga Jayawickrama has successfully completed his Master examination. EvoFish congratulates!
When climate change alters distributions of fish stocks, it is not only the biology of fish stocks that is affected: also the ownership of fish stocks is changing. This has implications for the countries that are sharing a resource.
EvoFish now boasts an exclusive trophy, dedicated to PhDs from EvoFish.
