Anne Gro Vea Salvanes
Anne Gro is a professor in Fisheries Biology at the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Bergen. Anne Gro received her Cand. Mag. Degree in Mathematics and Natural Sciences and her Master of Science and PhD in Fisheries Biology – with theses in marine ecology – from the University of Bergen.
Her main research interests are on environmental influences on fish and ecosystem functioning. Through fieldwork and experimental methods, she has studied the biology and ecology of hypoxia tolerant fish in upwelling ecosystems, how nursery environments shape juvenile cod and salmon behaviors as well as life history of mesopelagic fish.
Arild is a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Bergen and is part of the Fisheries Ecology and Aquaculture research group. His research focus is on growth and survival mechanisms in the early life of fishes.
The research is experimentally oriented, and covers aspects of marine juvenile production and process oriented recruitment studies.
Recently he has also been studying marine fish populations and their adaptations to native environments, using both genetic markers and information derived from otoliths.
Arved is a research scientist at the Institute of Marine Research in Bergen. His main research interests are in marine and fish ecology, as well as fisheries biology. He is particularly interested in how marine organisms are able to change their distribution and behavior in response to changes in their environment.
Understanding how environmental variation and human factors, such as fishing, may influence the ecology and biology of fish, can provide valuable information for future management of marine resources. The main data sources in his studies are in situ net-based biological catches and acoustic measurements.
