Louise Copeman

Marine Ecologist

Louise Copeman is a Marine Ecologist with the Alaska Fisheries Science Center's Fisheries Behavioral Ecology Program at the Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC) in Newport, Oregon.  Louise completed a BSc in Biology, a MSc in Aquaculture and a PhD in Marine Ecology at Memorial University of Newfoundland in eastern Canada. In 2011, Louise started the Marine Lipids Ecology Laboratory in Newport, Oregon. Here, she has established collaborations with many NOAA scientists as Research Faculty (2013-2020) at Oregon State University (CEOAS & CIMRS, OSU).

Louise’s current NOAA research resides at the interface of marine ecology and marine chemistry and focuses on informing issues of fisheries conservation, food web ecology and aquaculture development. Louise’s collaborative research projects have included the effects of temperature, oxygen, oil contamination and pH on lipid/ fatty acid allocation, growth and development in early life stages of marine organisms.

Louise's current collaborative research projects include:

Louise continues her collaborative projects with academia through her appointment as Courtesy Faculty in the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University.
