Aquatic ecology

Overfishing, hydropower, eutrophication, new invasive species, environmental pollutants, and climate change are taking a toll on our wild fish populations. Several species are threatened, some critically. We are working to generate new knowledge that can contribute to finding solutions to these problems.
