M.Sc. thesis title: Whitebait fishery effects on the population dynamics of kōkopu species.

Research Interests

I have a passion for working outdoors and am interested in aquatic ecology and conservation biology. I’m particularly interested in working with New Zealand’s banded, shortjaw, and giant kōkopu species. My M.Sc. research seeks to provide insight into how the whitebait fishery influences the populations dynamics of these kōkopu.
