Dr Martin Marzloff is an ARC Super Science Research Fellow at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies. His research focuses on the effects of climate and fishing on marine ecosystems.

Biography

Martin completed his MSc in fisheries Sciences at Agrocampus Ouest, in Rennes, France.  His MSc research project was based between Lima, Peru and Sete, France with the French Research Institute for Development (IRD), then during his PhD with the Quantitative Marine Science programme between UTAS and the CSIRO marine laboratories in Hobart. Martin specialises in the development and applications of a range of modelling tools to: (1) better understand marine ecosystem dynamics; (2) predict the effects of climate and fishing on the structure and functioning of marine communities; and (3) support ecosystem-based fisheries management (for instance, in Peru and eastern Tasmania).

Expertise

  • Marine ecosystem modelling
  • Decision-support tools for marine ecosystem and fisheries management
  • Assessment of the effects of fishing and climate on marine ecosystems
  • Quantitative ecology
  • Temperate reef communities and fisheries

Research Themes

The UTAS research themes that Martin's research contributes to are: Marine, Antarctic and Maritime; Environment, Resources and Sustainability; and Data, Knowledge and Decisions. Indeed, his research is essentially about developing ecological models that synthesise available information into predictive frameworks designed to support the practical management of marine ecosystems, and define safe operating spaces for ecosystem-based fisheries management. In addition to assessing the ecological consequences of management strategies or policies, his recent work, in particular the extension of his PhD modelling work to inform a Structured Decision-Making process for Tasmania's east coast reef ecosystems and fisheries, allowed the analysis of the performance of alternative management scenarios against multiple criteria about costs, benefits (i.e. fisheries productivity, but also in terms of biodiversity and ecosystem functioning), and feasibility.

Martin has supervised both a foreign MSc student who completed a 6-month traineeship at IMAS (Margaux Daniel, 2013-2014), and a domestic student Lainey James who completed her MSc thesis in August 2014 on the distribution of deep-reef sessile benthic assemblages in temperate eastern Australia. Lainey James is to start a PhD shortly.
