Pew Institute for Ocean Science awards 5 fellowships in support of global marine conservation
Date:2/4/2008

versity of Miamis Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. Each Fellow will carry out a pioneering project designed to protect and repair marine ecosystems that are acutely in need of help. Details about the Fellows and their projects are below.

-Equipping the worlds corals to withstand climate change: Dr. Andrew Baker is an Assistant Professor at the University of Miamis Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and a native of the United Kingdom. He will use his Pew Fellowship to help imperiled reef corals endure the warming ocean temperatures caused by climate change. Corals survive only within a narrow temperature range and when oceans warm beyond this, mass bleaching events can occur. When corals bleach, they lose their symbiotic algae, which provide them with energy and color, and often die. Dr. Baker has shown that some algal species are more heat tolerant than others. Through this project, he will develop techniques for adding heat-tolerant algae to corals to help them survive bleaching events.

- Safeguarding Antarctic krill populations that endangered whales rely upon as food: Dr. Andrew Constable is a native of Australia and a leader in the Antarctic Marine Ecosystems Program of the Australian Antarctic Division. Dr. Constable will use his Fellowship to create nimble fishery management models that will prevent Antarctic krill fisheries from being unsustainably exploited and thereby protect whales, penguins, and other marine animals that rely on krill as food. Dr. Constables models will incorporate many ever-fluctuating conditionsincluding water temperature, krill abundance, and whales seasonal breeding success -- so that krill fishery restrictions can be tightened or loosened accordingly. Dr. Constable will work with Antarctic authorities to implement this progressive ecosystem-based management model for krill, shrimp-like animals that are increasingly sought for use in fish-food, pharmaceutical applications,
