A big congratulations to PhD student Jack Hollins, who was recently awarded a grant from the NERC Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry Facility for his project entitled “The relationships among physiological traits, intraspecific niche variation, and susceptibility to capture by different fishing gears”. Among other things Jack will be using stable isotope analysis to understand differences in behaviour and physiology of individual fish within species.
On Thursday we saw the arrival of a couple of lab visitors from Italy. Stefano Marras (left) is a longtime friend and collaborator while Luca Pettinau is a Master's student who will be visiting our lab for three months. While here they'll be working on a project looking at how trait variation within fish schools influences shoal cohesion.
Recently we welcomed Mar Pineda to our lab group. Mar is a placement student from the University of Manchester and will be with us for the net 9 months. During this time she will be studying how temperature affects the spatial positioning of individual fish within swimming schools. Welcome Mar!
