Current Research

The following projects are currently underway in our laboratory, or in collaboration with other scientists or laboratories:

  • Otolith microstructure of various species, including trout, salmon and grayling
  • Statistical model for age estimation based on otolith weight and morphology
  • Age validation and preparation of growth models for species such as cusk, merluza, jurel and others, using bomb radiocarbon
  • Age-structured dynamics of Arctic freshwater fishes
  • Elemental fingerprinting and stock identification of species such as Icelandic cod
  • Exploration of novel trace elements as mass markers
  • Stable oxygen isotopes for reconstructing temperature
  • Trace element composition of the carbonate and proteinaceous fractions of otoliths
