Associate Professor of Marine Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Dr. Joel Fodrie is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Marine Sciences (UNC-CH), where he studies the population and community ecology of coastal fishes, shellfishes, seagrasses, and salt marshes. Dr. Fodrie has worked along all three major U.S. coastlines, examining: 1) linkages between coastal habitat quality and fishery production; 2) landscape ecology; 3) novel approaches for habitat restoration; 4) marine population connectivity; and 5) effects of harvest pressure and climate variability on long-term population trends of fishery species (using multi-decade data sets). Dr. Fodrie earned his Ph.D. from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (2006) and was a post-doctoral researcher at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. He has contributed >75 peer-reviewed articles and manuscripts that explore mechanisms of population variability for fishery species. These articles appear in journals such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Ecology, and Bioscience.
