  • Ichtyoplankton
  • marine spatial planning
  • Taxonomy of fish larvae, early life history of fishes, Pelagic Deep-sea fishes

Assignments

  • Annual assessment of pelagic fish stocks (herring, mackerel, horse mackerel, blue whiting and sprat) in the North Sea and North Atlantic for the determination of sustainable catches

  • Scientific assessment of potential impacts of human activities such as exploration of oil and gas, sand and gravel extraction and offshore wind farms in the German EEZ in the North Sea
  • Investigations on fish assemblages in small defined areas in the North Sea to assess the anthropogenic influence on marine ecosystems (e.g. offshore windfarms)
  • Recruitment research: Investigation of fish eggs and larvae in terms of species composition and size
  • MSFD - Implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework directive – Definition and validation of indicators and initial assessment
