Sport Fish Ecology Lab
The Sport Fish Ecology Lab
Dr. Jeffrey A. Stein
Our research lab is focused on the study of basic and applied ecology of freshwater and marine fisheries to understand linkages between life history and exploitation of fish populations by human activities. We use manipulative experiments, field studies, and long-term data sets in combination to explore the roles humans play in driving variation in fish populations. Our interests span a variety of species and systems, providing a broad spectrum of perspectives. Fundamentally, we seek to explore how human activities can impact the reproductive ecology and behavior of fishes, ultimately translating findings into meaningful and effective conservation actions.

We are looking to take a graduate student to start in the Sport Fish Ecology Lab in Fall 2014. Both M.S and Ph.D. applications will be considered. More Information.
