The results of this growth trial of
juvenile fish will provide a mechanistic understanding of what the environmental drivers of growth and production are. This deeper understanding will re-inforce
field observations and support fish habitat mapping for ecosystem based marine management.
The overall approach is that 2-5 students will work closely together to run a laboratory
controlled growth experiment then share the diverse data produced to answer different
questions about the productivity
The projects are suited to masters
students who are currently completing coursework but looking to organise their
project for late summer / autumn of 2020. There are four possible project ideas pre-planned
but we are open to different suggestions.
This project is adequately funded for both equipment and technical support and successful applicants will
gain specific skills
in fish sampling, handling and experimental design.

Elliot Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Supervision will ultimately be
carried out via Elliot, Jane Behrens and Tommy Norin.
