East Farm, Bldg. 50,
We work in the area of aquatic resource harvesting technologies, and their impact on the ecosystem. Reduction of bycatch through the development of sizeand species specific fishing gear, and the quantitative evaluation of the effects of those gears on fish stocks and the habitat, is the dominant research theme of our lab. State of the art underwater video cameras, advanced diving systems, acoustic mensuration systems and a fleet of small research vessels facilitate these investigations.
A new area of research interest is the development of appropriate technology for shellfish and finfish aquaculture. For both land and sea based systems the behavior of animals held in captivity at high densities and the development of advanced filtration technologies in closed systems are subjects of interest.
