Research Interests

Commercial fisheries and aquaculture development are my broad areas of interest. Related research includes fishing gear selectivity and bycatch; management and regulatory strategies for commercial fisheries; seafood production and utilization. Additionally, I am interested in applicable technology and information transfer.

Current Projects
  • Selectivity of sea scallop dredges constructed with 3, 3.25 and 3.50 inch rings.
  • Selectivity of trawl nets in the sea scallop fishery.
