My Research

Recreational fishing waste, such as offals and carcasses thrown back into the water can result in a highly predictable food source for wildlife. This novel food source can have positive (easy access to food, increased breeding performance) and negative impacts (dependency, increased aggression) on marine wildlife. This project aims to quantify recreational fishing waste and assess the potential ecological impact the waste could have on different species (fish, invertebrates). This project's goal will not interfere with recreational fishers and their practices. This research is funded by the Recreational Fishing Trust.


Hi, I’m Loéva

I am a PhD candidate at Macquarie University. I have studied marine biology for my bachelor's and master's degrees. I am particularly interested in behavioural ecology and marine conservation.
