Fields of activity

  • Organizing the German trawl survey in the Western Baltic Sea in the framework of the Baltic International trawl survey (ICES-BITS)
  • At sea sampling of the German commercial Baltic Sea fisheries
  • Data analysis and reporting of the commercial fisheries sampling and trawl surveys
  • Participation in the ICES WGBIFS


Research interests

  • Fisheries-dependent data collection (commercial trawl and artisanal fishery) and fisheries-independent data (surveys) in the Western Baltic Sea
  • condition and age determination of cod in the Baltic Sea
  • ecology of estuarine fish
