Ben Laurel is a Research Fisheries Biologist in the Fisheries Behavioral Ecology Program at the NOAA-Alaska Fisheries Science Center laboratory at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, OR. His interests include the behavioral and physiological ecology of larvae and juvenile fish species in coldwater marine systems. He is particularly interested in the role that behavior and physiology drive patterns of habitat use, survival and dispersal during these early life stages. He uses a combination of experimental and field approaches in his research.

Dr. Laurel received his MSc (1998) and PhD (2003) from Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland. He then conducted postdoctoral work with DFO-Canada and NOAA Fisheries prior to his NOAA appointment at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, OR.
