Fisheries and
Marine Biology

The Department of Zoology at the University of British Columbia has a broad array of research programs in marine, aquatic, and fisheries biology. These research areas are strengthened by our close links with the Bamfield Marine Station, Vancouver Aquarium, West Vancouver Lab, and the Fisheries Centre. Research interests range from trophic interactions in aquatic communities to social interactions among marine mammals. Several investigators within the department explore the impact of human development and harvesting on aquatic and marine systems and apply their findings to the management of aquatic and marine resources. Specific research interests include:
