Jeffrey Hutchings

Researcher

Background

I am Professor of Biology and Canada Research Chair in Marine Conservation and Biodiversity at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada. My work centres on questions pertaining to the life-history evolution, population dynamics, phenotypic plasticity, behavioural ecology, and conservation biology of marine and anadromous fishes, particularly Atlantic cod, Atlantic salmon, and brook trout. From an applied perspective, my research bears on questions pertaining to: the collapse, recovery and sustainable harvesting of marine fishes; interactions between wild and farmed Atlantic salmon; population consequences of fisheries-induced evolution and the biodiversity of Arctic and sub-Arctic fishes.
