Recent paper published on the growth and energetic requirements of yellowtail kingfish

We are very happy to announce that research led by Callum Donohue and Ana Sequeira has been published in the journal Aquaculture. This research, Bioenergetic growth model for the yellowtail kingfish (Seriola lalandi), provides a mathematical model to predict the energetic requirements and biochemical flux of yellowtail kingfish, a highly valued aquaculture species. This research was conducted during Callum’s placement as a research assistant in the lab under the global Aquaspace project.

New paper assessing how much tracking data biases affect species distribution models

Dr Ana Sequeira and Dr Malcolm O’Toole have led a newly published paper on tracking marine animals published in the journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution. The study Quantifying effects of tracking data bias on species distribution models used simulation data emulating the movement of marine predators to test the effects of different types of tracking data when developing species distribution models.
