We are interested in how the world’s oceans will respond to major perturbations of the anthropocene – enormous removals of fish biomass, coupled with warming, stratification, deoxygenation and acidification – and how we should be managing ocean resources. Our work is structured around a series of broad questions. Where do animals live, and how will they redistribute in the future? What are their habitats, and where are these habitats headed? At what scales should we manage them? How can they help us answer these questions?
