Apr28Department of Fisheries Oceanography PhD Dissertation Proposal Defense by Marjorie Lyssikatos
The School for Marine Science and Technology Department of Fisheries Oceanography Ph.D. Dissertation Proposal in Marine Science and Technology – Living Marine Resources Science and Management By Marjorie C Lyssikatos “Inferring Diet Composition and Consumption between Sympatric U.S. Northwest Atlantic Harbor (Phoca vitulina vitulina) and Gray (Halichoerus grypus atlantica) Seals from Incidental Bycatch Events: A Combined Methods Approach” Tuesday, April 28, 2020 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm via Zoom (instructions below) Graduate Advisors: Dr. Steven X. Cadrin Dr. Stephanie Wood (Umass Boston) Committee Members: Dr. Sean Hayes (NOAA NEFSC) Dr. Gavin Fay (Umass Dartmouth - SMAST) Dr. Kenneth Oliveira (Umass Dartmouth – Biology) Ad-Hoc Committee Member: Dr. Suzanne Budge (Dalhousie University) Abstract - The primary goal of my dissertation is to improve our understanding of the dietary habits of both harbor (Phoca vitulina vitulina) and gray (Haliochoerus grypus atlantica) seals in the US Northwest Atlantic (NWA) region, ranging from Maine to New Jersey. This research is important as it aims to address several questions related to the potential role the two most common and sympatric seals species have on food web dynamics in the region. The questions have been prompted by concerns raised among fisheries scientists and managers, commercial and recreational fishing interests, government and non-governmental conservation organizations, and the general public. Recovering harbor and gray seal populations in the greater New England region are at the center of this nexus.
