Science Team

FishTRACS brings together ecologists, geneticists, statisticians and oceanographers, who provide expertise and data regarding three key elements Рpopulation demography and field sampling, mark/recapture data from genetic tags, and empirical and model-based evaluation of oceanographic processes Рto increase understanding of biophysical processes underpinning patterns of larval dispersal. Our principal investigators are:

Dr. Mark Carr, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, UC Santa Cruz




Dr. Carlos Garza, Ocean Sciences, UC Santa Cruz / NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service




Dr. Chris Edwards, Ocean Sciences, UC Santa Cruz
