My main interest is how fisheries and other human activities interact with species’ life history traits, behaviour and reproductive biology in an integrated ecological and evolutionary perspective. In this context, most of my previous and current research is conducted on different wrasse species commercially harvested and used as cleaner fish in salmonid aquaculture.
