POSTDOCTORAL OPPORTUNITY: Combined effects of warming, acidification and deoxygenation on marine fish

University of Connecticut

The Baumann lab is looking for a motivated post-doc to complement my lab in 2017, helping to study the combined effects of warming, acidification and deoxygenation on marine fish, in particular on early live stages. We look for a candidate to conduct novel multistressor experiments within and across generations of key forage fish such as Atlantic silversides (Menidia menidia) or Northern sand lance (Ammodytes dubius). This NSF funded work will elucidate short-term as well as whole life cycle consequences of multistressor environments using a mixture of field, experimental and modeling approaches. The ideal candidate will try to broaden the scope of the research of our lab by bringing novel aspects, approaches, or techniques to our existing expertise.

Acidic sea water affects growth of oysters

WCSH6 PORTLAND

Over ninety percent of Maine's oyster harvest comes from the Damariscotta River. 

Mook Sea Farm in Walpole has been operating along the river for over thirty years and owner Bill Mook is worried about the impact of ocean acidification on his crop.

Studies testing kelp to ease effects of ocean acidification

Studies testing kelp to ease effects of ocean acidification

The Seattle Times

A team of scientists is investigating whether growing kelp can reduce carbon-dioxide levels in the inland marine waters of Puget Sound. They also want to find ways to market that harvested kelp for food, fuels or fertilizers.
