Mark Meekan, Australian Institute of Marine Science, Measuring the effects of shark loss in coral reef ecosystems

I currently lead three major projects. The first examines the ecology of larval fish with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies. This research looks at the sensory ecology and behaviour of reef fish during the larval and juvenile stages. The second quantifies the effects of fishing on sharks in northern Australian waters; and the third, based at Ningaloo Reef, examines the ecology and migration patterns of elasmobranchs and reef fishes. This last project is a large, multi-agency collaboration and involves numerous post-graduate students.
