Fields of study
In the field of Science - Marine Population Dynamics and Management.
The aim of the project is to investigate the feeding biology, growth dynamics and bio-energetics of whiting (Merlangius merlangus) in the Western Baltic Sea, and to compare these population dynamic parameters with those of its conspecific in the North Sea.
The impact of influencing factors on the above parameters, such as seasonal and geographical variation in e.g. hydrographical conditions (temperature, salinity, oxygen), as well as sex, maturity, age and condition specific variability will be evaluated in the comparative study between Baltic and North Sea whiting.
