Project Details


Fish Ecology: My main scientific work has been on fish assemblages on the Faroe Bank. Focus has been on the species composition, spatial and temporal distribution, food and feeding habits of the fish species living on the Bank.I am contributing in a big Nordic project, “Nordic Centre for Research on Marine Ecosystems and Resources under Climate Change” (NorMER). NorMER brings together expertise of leading research groups from all Nordic countries and several North American institutions, to implement a collective and multidisciplinary research strategy to explore the biological, economic, and management consequences of global climate change on fisheries resources. Currently, we are running 17 PhD and 8 Postdoc projects.

Additionally, the studies have been conducted on genetic structure of the fish population, life-history and the effect of climate change on the distribution patterns of Faroese fish species.
