In this episode, Valerio (Postdoctoral fellow, Institut de Ciencias del Mar, Barcelona Spain) takes us on a deep dive of his paper: Sbragaglia, Klamser, et al. 2022: ‘Evolutionary Impact of Size-Selective Harvesting on Shoaling Behavior: Individual-Level Mechanisms and Possible Consequences for Natural and Fishing Mortality.’ We discuss how size-selective fishing practices can have unintended behavioral and ecological consequences for fisheries populations, and how interdisciplinary collaborations – in this case between behavioral ecology and biophysics – can enhance our understanding of complex feedbacks at individual and group levels. Listen to our chat and then read Valerio’s full paper here!
