Project Description

Dr. Fodrie is an assistant professor of fisheries oceanography and ecology at the University of North Carolina, where he studies the population dynamics of fishes and shellfish. He has conducted research along all three major U.S. coastlines, as well as in the Baltic Sea and around the Galápagos Islands. Dr. Fodrie earned his Ph.D. in Oceanography from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, where he was supported as a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and presented with the E. W. Fager Student Award. Dr. Fodrie’s research focuses on four major themes: 1) how the movement of fishes connects landscapes and affects population dynamics; 2) linkages between coastal habitat abundance/quality and fishery production; 3) biogenic habitat restoration; and 4) how basin-scale perturbations such as harvest pressure, climate change, and oil pollution influence the long-term community ecology of coastal ecosystems.
