Works with

• Fish abundance survey methodology including fishing gear technology, combining acoustics and trawl, uncertainties in stock assessment, assessing trophic relations
• Fish behaviour and migration
• New technology in ecosystem studies using acoustics, lidar, and new instrument platforms.
• Ecosystem effects of fishing including long-term erosion of genetic resources
• Monitroing effects of petroleum drilling - detection, distribution and quantification of drilling disposals
