Interests

Dr. Greg Stunz is a Professor of Marine Biology and Endowed Chair for Fisheries and Ocean Health at the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies. A major focus of Dr. Stunz's research program is to provide scientific data for sustainable management of our marine fisheries and ocean resources to ensure healthy environments. Greg's research program is diverse but currently focuses on migration patterns marine life using a variety of state-of-the-art electronic tracking devices, how marine animals interact with their habitats, and the vital role that estuaries and near-shore waters play in sustaining marine populations. Specifically, his research includes understanding the roles of apex predators in Gulf ecosystems and tracking their movement patterns, dolphin-fish migration patterns and life history, red snapper ecology and management, several projects dealing with many estuarine fishes such as spotted seatrout and red drum and their sustainable management, and many others.
