Fish / Fish Habitats

Project Description

Fish spawning aggregations (FSAs) occur when many members of a single species of fish gather in one location to reproduce. Dr. Brad Erisman’s research focuses on understanding interconnections among FSAs, ecosystems, fisheries, and climate. This matters because FSAs are productivity hotspots critical to marine food webs and ecosystem function. They also support the most productive and important commercial, recreational, and subsistence fisheries. Characterizing the dynamics of FSAs and how they interact with fisheries is vital for supporting the livelihoods and food security of coastal communities.
