Scott A. Pavey

Science Director, CRI

Dr. Scott A. Pavey is broadly interested in ecology, evolution, and conservation. He holds a Research Chair of Aquatic Molecular Ecology and Ecological Genomics that uses the most state-of-the-art technologies and the scientific techniques to address basic and applied questions in conservation, fisheries management, and ecological genomics. By scanning the DNA of wild populations, we can reveal which parts of the DNA are coding for which traits, and what adaptions are most important for persistence in different environments. This research will then be used to better assess and manage regional fish populations and the effects that human-induced and environmental changes have on these species.
