Recruitment patterns in flatfish examined through genomic analyses




Central and West Jutland

An improved understanding of the connectivity between adult populations and juvenile nursery areas is important for management of marine fishes. In flatfish, nursery areas are often coastal and connectivity to adult spawning populations may be highly affected by oceanographic conditions. In this project, we will use high throughput genetic methods to examine genetic variation in thousands of genetic markers in adults and juvenile flatfish (plaice in particular). Genetic patterns will be linked to oceanographic modelling results to improve our understanding of connectivity in the species and to examine its dependency on oceanographic and environmental variation.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
