Research fields

1. Fisheries (dynamics of marine biological resources; management of marine fishes and invertebrates, mainly echinoderms; population genetics; fishery biology; genetic and biological stocks delimitation; fisheries stock assessment)

 

2. Aquaculture (biotechnology for sea cucumbers aquaculture; starvation; feeding; energy budgets; reproduction in captivity; hatchery; sea ranching; genetics improvement; inbreeding)

 

3. Marine Ecology (fish and echinoderms ecology; echinoderms behavior; methods of data analysis; population connectivity; molecular ecology)

 

4. Marine Conservation (Marine Protected Areas, re-stocking activities, biodiversity and marine resources conservation, society and natural resources)

 

5. Invasive species (aquatic biological invasions; climate change; genetic patterns of colonization)

 

6. Marine Science Education (group communication, volunteer programs, society and natural resources, collaboration with NGOs)
