Arbeider med

A)  Helhetlig forvaltning

Forvaltningsplanene for Barentshavet og Norskehavet er viktige verktøy i en helhetlig forvaltning av havet og kysten og de økosystemene som gir grunnlag for høsting av havets ressurser. Den rådgivende gruppe for overvåking av disse havområdene ledes av Havforskningsinstituttet, og for tiden tar arbeidet som leder av denne gruppen halvparten av min arbeidstid.

Annet arbeid innen helhetlig forvaltning er arbeid med norsk-russisk miljøforvaltning og den årlige miljøkonferansen Arctic Frontiers i Tromsø.

B) Kyst- og fjordøkologi

Undersøkelser av økologi i Porsangerfjorden (Prosjekt EPIGRAPH) er en viktig basis for å forstå variasjoner i ressurser og miljø langs kysten, og ute i havet. Jeg arbeider med modeller for fiskebestander, spesielt kysttorsk, og samarbeider med samfunsvitenskapelige miljøer ved universitetet i Tromsø for å øke forståelsen for bruk og vern av kysten. Bruk av lokal kunnskap og deltagelse fra fiskere i kartleggingsarbeid øker vår forståelse av økosystemet.

C) Taksering av fisk- og skalldyrbestander

Arbeidet i det internasjonale råd for havforskning (ICES) er viktig for å kunne forvalte våre marine ressuresr etter vitenskapelige råd. Jeg arbeder med taksering av torsk (kysttorsk), taskekrabbe og rognkjeks. Grunnlaget for vår taksering er data vi samler inn med forskningsfartøy (kysttokt hver høst) og data vi samler inn ved hjelp av fiskere.
