25feb11:0011:45Lunch seminar (12.00-12.45): Presentation by Kathy Dunlop: "Pacific salmon invasion impacts on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in Northern Norway"

Event Details

Kathy is a senior researcher at IMR, working on aquaculture environmental interactions in coastal northern Norway. Kathy`s experience specializes in deep-sea and coastal  benthic research using imaging technology. She has used these skills to examine scavenging ecology in Antarctica and the Arctic and had a specific interest in understanding the energy and nutrients transferred to the freshwater and terrestrial ecosystem from pacific pink salmon carcasses and eggs during the recent pink salmon invasions in northern Norway.
The presentation builds on her two recent papers:
Dunlop et al 2020 in Ecology of FReshwater Fish: “Evidence of energy and nutrient transfer from invasive pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) spawners to juvenile Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and brown trout (Salmo trutta) in northern Norway.
Dunlop et al 2020 in Biological Invasions: “Terrestrial and semi-aquatic scavengers on invasive Pacific pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) carcasses in a riparian ecosystem in northern Norway”
