Research Interests

In general terms I am interested in the genetic of salmonid fish, with primary focus on Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.). I am interested in understanding the salmon genome and using this knowledge to help inform sustainable management of the species. Within the broad topic area my particular focuses currently include:

  • Understanding the population structure of salmon in Scotland and the Eastern Atlantic area
  • Individual assignment of fish in the marine environment to their river of origin and mixed stock analysis of salmon fisheries
  • Interactions of wild and cultured salmon
  • Quantifying potential interactions of migrating salmon with marine renewable resources

Collaborations

I collaborate with a wide range of individuals in Government agencies (SEPA, SNH, EA, CEFAS), fisheries trusts and universities. My primary international collaborations at present are with the Institute of Marine Research (IMR) in Bergen, Norway (http://www.imr.no) and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Stockholm, Sweden (http://www.slu.se).

External Committees and Responsibilities

I represent Scotland on the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) expert Working Group on Application of Genetics in Fisheries and Mariculture (WGAGFM).
