Hi Bivalve Aficionados,
We hope you’ve all had a productive summer, and are getting back into the swing of things on campus. As the famous adage goes, “time and tide wait for no one,” so we are super excited to take advantage of the momentum we’ve got going in setting up the UW Shellfish Farm in just a few weeks!
We’ve got cages built, and thousands of baby oysters ready to be planted onto the beach at Big Beef Creek, so all we need is YOUR HELP.
[speaker]: Large whale satellite telemetry: A tool for determining habitat-use, distribution, and behavior of endangered whale populations.

[speaker]: The impact of density-dependent changes in individual life histories on marine population dynamics
In this presentation I review how current fisheries models account for ecological processes. Subsequently, I will introduce a class of size-structured population models based on individual energetics that explicitly account for ecological interactions of individual fish. Analysis of models of this kind will be shown to not only increase our understanding of the mechanisms shaping fish community dynamics, but also make counterintuitive predictions about the outcome of fisheries management strategiesRead more
The Mary Gates Endowment for Students is currently accepting scholarship applications.
