About the Lab

Sustainability of seafood and marine ecosystems are increasingly threatened by multiple stressors that act and interact at different scales. Globally, aquaculture (i.e., aquatic farming) is now the dominant form of seafood production, but there are major scientific gaps in understanding the consequences of aquatic farming in a larger, ecological food-system context, especially under a changing climate. In the Froehlich Lab, our research aims to tackle these problems by understanding the links between patterns and process at the species to global scale, using field- and lab-based physiology and behavior analyses, combined with social and ecological modelling and data science. Currently, my lab is exploring interactions and impacts of aquaculture, wild fisheries, and climate change.
