Friday seminar: From ions to ecosystems: Using natural chemical tracers to monitor fish connectivity and health in a changing world

By Anna Sturrock from the University of Essex, UK

Abstract

Approximately 3 billion people rely on fish as a major source of animal protein, yet many species are in major decline as a result of habitat loss, pollutants and overfishing. Here, I will give an overview of my research integrating natural chemical tracers, biochronologies and applied tags to reveal patterns in fish migration and condition, and the legacy effects of different stressors on fish productivity and resilience.
