The Fish Ecology Lab at IMEDEA

Group picture in December 2018

The Fish Ecology Lab belongs to IMEDEA, a joint research center of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB). We conduct research on all aspects of fish and fisheries ecology. We are particularly committed to the development of new tools to infer population dynamics, and on the multi-scale connections between environmental changes, fisheries and impacts on society. We tackle all life-history phases and levels of association, from individuals to assemblages, and all time-scales, thanks to our multidisciplinary approach. We have expertise in mechanistic and statistical modeling and have numerous projects on fisheries oceanography. We have a long trajectory in schlerochronology, having our own microchemistry facilities. We are leaders in the analysis or recreational fisheries in the Mediterranean and in the interactions of fish movement (telemetry) and human behaviour, and coordinate not only international and national but locally-focused projects in order to transfer knowledge to the community. We work in close collaboration with the LIMIA, the Regional Government Aquaculture Research Centre that has recently become an associated unit of   IMEDEA . 

Aim of the site

This site is only aiming at showing the general goals/facilities of the Fish Ecology Group, and an updated list of the group members, publications and projects. It also displays relevant news on the research activity of the Group. Links to individual research items (publications, projects) can be acessed through clicking on each individual group member (see "Our Team" and "my work") activities, maintained at IMEDEA web site.
