PhD Studentship: Validation and Development of Otolith Microchemistry in free-ranging Marine Fish

By James Cutler / 13th November 2018 / 0 Comments

Anna Sturrock University of Southampton Supervisor(s): Dr Clive Trueman, Dr Ewan Hunte The aim of the project is to determine the relationship between otolith microchemistry and the ambient environmental conditions experienced by free-swimming plaice (Pleuronectes platessa L.). By matching known spatial and temporal movements with otolith composition, we hope to validate and develop otolith microchemistry […]

PhD Studentship: Extent and Drivers for Cryptic Benthivory in ‘Pelagic’ Ocean Sunfish

By Ruth Smyth / 30th January 2018 / Comments Off on PhD Studentship: Extent and Drivers for Cryptic Benthivory in ‘Pelagic’ Ocean Sunfish

Natasha Phillips Queen’s University Belfast Supervisor(s): Jon Houghton and Chris Harrod The ocean sunfish (Mola mola) is often described as an inactive, obligate predator of gelatinous zooplankton, but new research suggests these long held beliefs need significant revision. A recent study has revealed evidence of cryptic benthivory in juveniles and this project aims to examine […]
