In the Institute of Zoology there are several researchers working on aspects of BIOT science:
David Curnick is investigating the role of large marine protected areas as a conservation strategy for pelagic tunas and sharks.
David Jacoby is studying the behaviour and ecology of reef sharks, a group of species under particular pressure from poaching activities.
Tom Letessier is working to understand how Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing impacts the marine reserve and how fishers that break the rules there perceive the risks and benefits of doing so.
Malcolm Nicoll, Robin Freeman, Peter Carr and Hannah Woods are all working on aspects of seabird biology and ecology across the region.
