Outline of IMBRIW researchEva2021-10-22T15:29:50+03:00
Biology, ecology and life-history of aquatic organisms and fisheries resources
i.e. demersal organisms, small and medium pelagics, large pelagics, marine cetaceans and reptiles, freshwater organisms: age, growth, reproduction, population dynamics, mortality, feeding, spatiotemporal distribution, abundance, behavior, migrations, acoustics, tagging
Biodiversity conservation and environmental restoration
taxonomy, distribution, abundance, biology and ecology of freshwater organisms, genetic structure of fish, conservation of endemic freshwater fish, habitat restoration, marine and freshwater alien species and their interaction with native ones
Ecological quality assessments and monitoring
monitoring and assessment of ecological status of surface waters according to the Water Framework Directive provisions, development of river typology schemes, establishment of reference conditions, selection of metrics for assessing ecological degradation, definition of the metric scale to assess deviation from reference conditions
Integrated river basin management
integrated water resources management at the catchment scale employing ecological quality assessments, numerical modeling to simulate processes driving hydrology and water quality and to produce management scenarios, study of ‘hot moments’, i.e. droughts and floods, and their effects on aquatic communities, predictability of water cycle, through studying land-surface and coastal water processes and optimal integration of models with observational data
Fisheries ecology and Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management
fisheries-aquaculture-environment interactions, adult/juvenile spatiotemporal bathymetric distribution, geographic distribution, conservation of non-fisheries resources, integrated coastal zone management including design and management of artificial reefs and marine protected areas, ecological modeling and simulations of fisheries exploitation scenarios in an ecosystem context, monitoring through the Marine Strategy Framework Directive
Fisheries dynamics and capture
monitoring through the EU Data Collection Framework, fleet dynamics, landings, stock assessments, new fisheries resources, small-scale and trawl gear selectivity, discards, VMS monitoring, socio-economics, development of management plans
Modeling and assessment
various age-based and global production models, time series models, habitat suitability models, Individual Based Models – IBM, Ecopath-w-Ecosim, numerical weather prediction models, hydro-meteorological models, statistical evaluation of weather forecasts
Database and GIS Support Unit.
