Research Areas

Ecosystem impacts of climate variability and change

How will climate change impact the North Pacific food web?  Our fisheries?  How does the ecosystem respond to phenomena like El Niño?

Size-based approaches to ecosystem analysis

Generally, big things eat little things.  How can we use this information to model the ecosystem? 

Pelagic marine fisheries

How has Hawaii’s longline fishery changed over time?  Are we catching more or fewer fish?  Different species of fish?  What drives these changes?
