Evolutionary Fisheries Ecology

Evolutionary Fisheries Ecology is a research group that brings a strong evolutionary dimension to the study of fisheries and fisheries science.

Most research in EvoFish is currently related to fisheries-induced evolution, but we are also more generally interested in fisheries ecology and evolutionary ecology.

EvoFish has its core funding from the Bergen Research Foundation and the Department of Biology. We are well linked locally, nationally as well as internationally.

EvoFish organized and sponsored a symposium on Evolving Fish, Changing Fisheries at the American Fisheries Society annual meeting August 17-21st, 2008 in Ottawa, Canada. A special issue published in the Evolutionary Applications contains some highlights from the session.
