IFISH in the News

What we have been up to recently!


Dr Julia Calderwood was invited to present outputs from the DiscardLess hotspot mapping app and the IFISH project at a Hotspots Mapping Initiative workshop organised by NFWF and NOAA to help evaluate the feasibility of the use of fisheries hotspot communication networks in the Gulf of Mexico 


Julia has been selected to take part in the 2022 European Crucible as a member of the European Cohort. The European Crucible is a leadership and development programme for early/mid-career researchers from Scotland and Europe . European Crucible seeks to establish new researcher networks for aspiring research leaders, and to facilitate international collaborations for new interdisciplinary research initiatives and innovations.

Dr Julia Calderwood and her work on the IFISH project have been featured in the Journal of Ocean Technology
