Topic: "Ecosystem dynamics and environmental decision making: case studies from a fisheries and restoration perspective."adrian jordan

Dr. Adrian Jordaan is the Director of the Gloucester Marine Station and an Associate Professor of Fish Population Ecology and Conservation in the Department of Ecological Conservation. He joined the University of Massachusetts Amherst in September 2012 and began leading the revitalization of the Gloucester Marine Station (GMS) in 2015.

His research employs quantitative modeling and statistical approaches to understand ecological patterns and life processes in marine, near-shore, and freshwater systems. He is particularly interested in the links between ecosystems, the services they provide and resource management.

From an applied perspective, he seeks to understand anthropogenic and natural variation within aquatic and marine animal populations, and help to develop effective regulatory, restoration, and social options for cross boundary ecosystem-based management.

A critical part of this research focus is the engagement of fisheries practitioners and other stakeholders and managers towards finding the “sweet spots” where science can advance sustainability and enhance access to resources.

In this vein, he actively engages as part of his research, the GMS directorship, as appointed member of the New England Fishery Management Council Scientific and Statistical Committee, and representative on the Northeast Region Coordinating Council Assessment Working Group.
