Event Details:

The Marine Institute welcomes its newest researcher Dr. Tyler Eddy as he explores “Fisheries in a Changing World”. Dr. Eddy recently joined the Institute’s Centre for Fisheries Ecosystems Research and is developing a program investigating interactions between fisheries, climate change, and ecosystems in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Changes in fish populations and coastal fishing communities became a strong interest during his undergraduate studies at Dalhousie University, where he completed an Honours BSc in Marine Biology. He then went on to do his PhD in New Zealand to study different approaches to fisheries management and marine conservation including ecosystem-based fisheries management, rights-based fisheries, and marine protected area impacts on ecosystems and fisheries.  Following his PhD, Tyler held a postdoctoral fellowship at Dalhousie University and was a Nereus Program Research Fellow at the University of British Columbia and the University of South Carolina. His postdoctoral research has focused on emerging shellfish fisheries, climate change impacts on fisheries, and ecology and fisheries at the Galápagos Archipelago.
