After obtaining a PhD at Memorial University of Newfoundland (1991), Jeffrey Hutchings worked at the University of Edinburgh and Fisheries & Oceans Canada (St. John’s) before accepting a position in the Department of Biology at Dalhousie University (1995), where he is Izaak Walton Killam Memorial Chair in Fish, Fisheries and Oceans. His work on fish ecology, evolution, and population dynamics has been published in more than 220 peer-reviewed scientific articles. He has served on the editorial boards of eight scientific journals and multiple expert review panels in Canada, Sweden, Ireland, and the United States. In addition to his primary Canadian appointment, his research in Fenno-Scandia has included positions held at Havforskingsinstituttet (Flødevigen Research Station), University of Oslo (CEES), and University of Jyväskylä (Finland).
My research focuses on the ecology and evolution of fishes. Specific research fields include life-history evolution, population dynamics, fisheries science, behavioural ecology, and ecological speciation. Research methodologies currently include mathematical modelling, laboratory common-garden experiments, data meta-analyses, and transcriptomics. Primary study species are Atlantic cod, Atlantic salmon, and brook trout. From an applied perspective, the research has bearing on complexities related to: sustainable fisheries; species recovery; interactions between farmed and wild fishes; human-induced evolution; and coastal marine biodiversity.
