David M Warner, PhD

I have over 25 years of experience and knowledge in aquatic ecology and fish ecology in particular. I specialize in hydroacoustic surveys of fish and have carried out lake wide hydroacoustic fishery surveys in one of the largest lakes in the world for 20 years. There are no other freshwater fishery surveys of this magnitude in the world.

I am trained as an aquatic ecologist with an emphasis on fish populations and interactions of fish and other members of aquatic food webs.  I have conducted research in lakes ranging in size from New York FInger Lakes to the Great Lakes.  I have 17 years of experience conducting hydroacoustic research and am interested in using satellite-borne remote sensing tools as well.  Current research interests incluide fish population dynamics, ecology of Mysis diluviana, and evaluation of hydroacoustic methodology.
