Vacancy Title Ph D Thesis: Evaluating long term changes in the Bay of Biscay fish community
Country of employment France
Job description The subject of this thesis is to estimate the reference state and the carrying capacity of exploited
fish and shelfish stocks and assemblages in the Bay of Biscay. For this recent and historical data
are combined quantitatively. The three main objectives of the thesis are :
1. Estimation of the carrying capacity of a number of exploited species in the Bay of Biscay at the
end of the 19th/beginning of the 20th century using commercial catch data and fitting
population dynamics models using maximum likelihood or Bayesian methods.
2. Estimation of temporel changes in the structure of the fish community on the Bay of Biscay
continental shelf and in coastal zones for the période 1959-2008 using indicators that are
robust to changes in sampling protocole and comparaison of between continental shelf and
coastal zones;
3. Joint analysis of the impact of climate change and fishing on the structure of the shelf and
coastal fish communities using the developped indicators, climate model output (temperature)
and data on fishing pressure (number of vessles, landings) for the Bay of Biscay.
