Biography

My research interests focus on exploring the functional connectivity of marine ecosystems in Turkish waters. To achieve this goal, I employ morphological markers such as otolith and fish body shape to differentiate between fish stocks. I have conducted extensive research on stock connectivity for several pelagic fish species, including anchovies and horse mackerel. Moreover, I utilize geometric morphometric analysis to examine how invasive freshwater fish species have adapted their body shape to survive and establish populations in different freshwater habitats, such as rivers, freshwater lakes, and dam reservoirs. In my future studies, I plan to incorporate chemical markers alongside morphological ones to investigate fish stock connectivity. Additionally, I study the gastric evacuation rates (GER) of farmed fish and analyze how various predictor variables impact GER. By parameterizing these effects, I aim to gain a comprehensive understanding of how farmed fish process and digest their food. The resulting data can be used to optimize feeding schedules and amounts, leading to improved efficiency and reduced costs in fish farming. This information can be used to develop automatic feeders calibrated to the individual GERs of farmed fish.
