Dr. Caihong Fu

Chercheur scientifique

La recherche du Dr Caihong Fu contribue aux avancées du gouvernement du Canada dans le domaine des approches écosystémiques de la gestion des pêches et subvient aux impératifs  stratégiques ministériels consistant à favoriser des secteurs maritimes et des pêcheries économiquement prospères, et à garantir des écosystèmes aquatiques durables.

Ses recherches portent sur l'élaboration et l'application d'outils de modélisation qui améliorent la compréhension des écosystèmes aquatiques, y compris l'évaluation des impacts des activités humaines. Elle a mis à contribution son expertise de modélisation pour:

(1) développer des modèles de simulation des écosystèmes marins qui intègrent les interactions entre espèces, la gestion des pêches et les changements climatiques;

(2) introduire des innovations dans le processus d'évaluation des pêches qui améliorent la compréhension et la confiance des parties prenantes.

(3) élaborer des méthodes statistiques pour analyser les données écologiques marines, de l'océanographie physique, et de captures des pêches commerciales, afin d'améliorer la compréhension des impacts des facteurs externes sur la structure et le fonctionnement des écosystèmes;

(4) effectuer des évaluations techniques des stocks qui prennent en considération l'incertitude de manière quantitative.

Recherche et / ou projets en cours

Ma formation académique est fondée sur la dynamique des populations et l'évaluation des stocks de poissons. Mes intérêts de recherche résident principalement sur l`étude des changements climatiques et l'interaction des espèces sur la dynamique des populations et des écosystèmes, ainsi que les changements à apporter à la gestion des populations de poissons afin d`assurer leur durabilité.
