Fisheries and Aquatic Ecology



  • Database administrator: I support projects by setting up, populating, and disseminating fisheries databases.
  • Software developer: To manage fisheries information systems, I develop database-linked websites to enable users to access the data provided by projects. I regularly implement an online atlas to disseminate an organised view of the data I manage. I am also involved in the development of the popular Ecopath software for ecosystem modelling.
