My PhD project aims to assess the rate and direction of evolution in the North East Arctic (NEA) Cod stock, when accounting a combination of climate changes and fisheries pressure.
In order to do this I will be using and Individual Based Model (IBM) constructed in the Sustainable Fisheries Group here at the university, and forecasting various IPCC climate scenarios, combined with likely fishing intensity and selectivity.
The results of this would should be of wide interest, considering the management implications for this comercially important fish stock.
