A public lecture by the Royal Society of Tasmania
- Dr Valeriya Komyakova
With close to half of the world’s population residing in coastal areas, humans rely on marine environments for a range of services. These are supported by an extensive artificial infrastructure from purposely designed reefs, to piers and marinas. All marine infrastructure acts as a habitat regardless of its primary role. The risks and opportunities associated with marine construction, including artificial reefs and future blue-sky possibilities, are explored.
Dr Valeriya Komyakova is an environmental scientist who aims to understand and manage human impacts on the marine environment with a strong solution development focus. She has over 15 years’ of experience in the field of fish-habitat associations. Her work was the first to demonstrate potential ecological trap formation due to artificial reef deployments and pathways toward mitigation through improved reef design options.
