NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center
Alex DeRobertis is a Research Fisheries Biologist at the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, WA and works in the acoustics group. Alex studied predator-prey interactions between fish and euphausiids at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He went on to do postdoctoral work at the Hatfield Marine Science Center, where he worked on the ecology of early ocean entry salmon in the Columbia River plume. His interests include messing around in boats, development of acoustic methods to quantify the abundance of marine organisms, and investigating the role of physiological constraints and predation risk on the behavior and distribution of marine organisms. Alex is working on acoustics for the Understanding the Structure of Forage Fish Communities aspect of the Gulf of Alaska Project.
