Comparing globally-distributed population of Pomatomus saltatrix: Life histories and fisheries

Principal Investigators:

Francis Juanes

Pomatomus saltatrix is a migratory fish species with targeted fisheries throughout its global distribution. I will review the life history and ecology of the adult stages of P. saltatrix from global populations using data obtained from fisheries biologists and managers. I will produce a species phylogeny based on analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA from samples being collected presently. I will then use the life history data and genetic results to separate life history traits across populations to account for phylogenetic effects and thus... more
