I am investigating the impact of invasive feral Crassostrea gigas populations and its fishery on the native oyster Ostrea edulis as well as on surrounding benthic communities. This will involve manipulative and mensurative field experiments within the intertidal zone and will help to develop a management scheme for the fishery of wild Pacific oysters.
