Marta Coll

 

I am an Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD) researcher at the Marine Biodiversity, Exploitation and Conservation mixed research unit (MARBEC UMR - IRD, CNRS, Ifremer & University of Montpellier II) in Sète (France).

My research focuses on understanding patterns and processes that characterize marine ecosystems and, in particular, changes of, and threats to, marine biodiversity.

I study population, community and food-web dynamics linked with human activities (such as fisheries, climate change, eutrophication, and invasive species), and how these translate into changes in ecosystem structure and functioning, and services that humans obtain from the ocean. I develop and apply a variety of ecological analyses such as ecosystem modelling techniques and statistical tools, and I use historical data, fisheries statistics, experimental results and field data sets.

Ángel David Macías López

 

Científico titular del instituto Español de Oceanografía con más de 10 años de experiencia en biología pesquera, dinámica de poblaciones de peces y mitigación del by-catch.

Las actividades de investigación del Dr. David Macías se centran en la evaluación de las poblaciones de atunes de interés para la flota pesquera española. Además, la investigación está dirigida a obtener un mayor conocimiento sobre la biología de estas especies y los factores bióticos y abióticos que tienen un impacto sobre la pesca. La línea de investigación sobre la biología y pesca de túnidos y especies afines del Mediterráneo y región sur-atlántica española comenzó hace 25 años en el Centro Oceanográfico de Málaga del Instituto Español de Oceanografía, a través de un proyecto de investigación financiado por la UE (DGXIV) titulado "Caracterización de las poblaciones de grandes especies pelágicas (Thunnus thynnus L., Thunnus alalunga Bonn, Sarda sarda Bloch., y Xiphias gladius L.) en el Mediterráneo". Desde entonces se han desarrollado ininterrumpidamente diversos proyectos sobre la biología y pesca de túnidos en este Centro, financiados entre otros por el MEC, FEDER y la UE (DG-XIV, y recientemente H2020) .

Por otra parte, la captura incidental o bycatch, ya sea de clases de talla/edad no deseadas de las especies objetivo o de individuos pertenecientes a especies no objetivo, es una de las mayores amenazas para la sostenibilidad de las explotaciones pesqueras. En este contexto, la evaluación de la captura incidental y la cuantificación de la captura total (incluyendo la captura incidental) es también un objetivo importante del equipo de investigación. El Dr. D. Macías tiene una amplia experiencia en el análisis de las capturas incidentales, recibiendo financiación a través de varios proyectos de investigación nacionales e internacionales financiados por la SGM (SGPM, SGP) y UE (DG XIV). Los principales resultados han sido publicados en revistas nacionales e internacionales.

En la actualidad su investigación se centra en el potencial reproductivo de túnidos templados, el estudio del by-catch de peces y vertebrados marinos asociados a las pesquerías de palangre y la caracterización de stocks (marcado y genética de poblaciones). Regularmente atiende reuniones y grupos de trabajo del subcomité de ecosistemas y by-catch de la ICCAT, participa en varios proyectos nacionales e internacionales y regularmente supervisa y dirige a estudiantes de doctorado y máster. Ha publicado más de 50 trabajos en revistas revisadas por pares y más de 60 documentos de trabajo en varias RFMOS.

Daniel Pauly

 

Dr. Daniel Pauly was born 1946 in Paris, France. He grew up in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, but completed high school and university studies in the Federal Republic of Germany, where he earned a ‘Diplom’ (= MSc) in 1974 and a Doctorate in Fisheries Biology in 1979 at the University of Kiel. Daniel Pauly is French, but, since 2014, also holds Canadian citizenship.

In 1979, he joined the International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM), Manila, Philippines, as a Postdoctoral Fellow, gradually assuming increasing responsibilities as Associate Scientist, Senior Scientist and Program/Division Director. The latter positions involved management of and fundraising for what had traditionally been one of ICLARM’s largest and most scientifically visible sets of activities.

Following a study leave to earn his ‘Habilitation’, at Kiel University (1985), Dr. Pauly directed the doctoral theses of a number of students at Kiel’s Institut für Meereskunde (Marine Science Institute), where, as ‘Privatdozent,’ he also taught several courses in fish population dynamics.  In 1994, he joined the Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia (UBC), in Vancouver, Canada, as a tenured Professor, while remaining ICLARM’s Principal Science Advisor until 1997 and the Science Advisor of its FishBase project until 2000. He served as Director of the Fisheries Centre from November 2003 to October 2008.

Since 1999, Dr. Pauly has served as Principal Investigator of the Sea Around Us Project, based at the Fisheries Centre, UBC.  The project, which is devoted to studying the impact of fisheries on the world’s marine ecosystems, is supported mainly by funds he secured from the Pew Charitable Trusts, Philadelphia, USA, and since 2014, from the Paul G.

Since 2012, I work as a senior researcher in the Institute of Marine Research of the Basque Country (Azti-Tecnalia), in the group of Sustainable Fisheries Management. My research is focused mainly on the development of the R package FLBEIA (Fisheries Bio-Economic Impact Assessment Model) and management strategy evaluation of different fish stocks, such as Northern Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thynnus thunnus), redfish (Sebastes mentella) in the North Sea and cod (Gadus morhua) in the Flemish Cap. I have also participated in the ICES working group on Northeast Atlantic mackerel, contributing to evaluate the long-term effects of its management plan. Due to my knowledge in statistics, I also contributed to other projects in Azti-Tecnalia, related to the design of recreational and artisanal fisheries data collection, and the evaluation of electronic monitoring of tropical tuna purse-seine fishery.
