Dr Jeremy Lyle is a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies. He is interested in the field of fisheries ecology and biology with a particular focus on understanding fish population dynamics, the impacts of fishing on fish stocks and the characteristics of the recreational as well as commercial fishing sectors.
After completing his PhD at the University of Liverpool (UK), Jeremy was employed as a fisheries scientist in the Northern Territory where he led a major initiative to develop a shark fishery off northern Australia. From there he joined the then Tasmanian Sea Fisheries Department and later the Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute (TAFI), University of Tasmania. TAFI became part of the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies in 2010. He has worked on a wide variety of commercial fisheries, including offshore trawl, small pelagics and coastal fisheries, as well as conducting recreational fishing surveys over many years. The primary focus of his research has been to understand the impacts of fishing on target and non-target species and provide the science required to support the sustainable management of the fish stocks.
Gretta is a Professor of marine ecology. Her research includes detecting and understanding the mechanisms behind species range extensions, and population and fishery responses to environmental change. She was instrumental in the development of the citizen science model Redmap for ecological monitoring and community engagement.
Gretta is an ARC Future Fellow currently working with international colleagues on a Global Network of Marine Hotspots. She is internationally renowned for her innovative work on the biology and ecology of cephalopods. She is also Editor-in-Chief of the international journal Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries, and the Director of the Centre for Marine Socioecology
