• Inferring individual fate from aquatic acoustic telemetry data 

      Villegas-Ríos, David; Freitas, Carla; Moland, Even; Thorbjørnsen, Susanna Huneide; Olsen, Esben M. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Acoustic telemetry has become a popular means of obtaining individual behavioural data from a wide array of species in marine and freshwater systems. Fate information is crucial to understand important aspects of population ...
    • Protected areas buffer against harvest selection and rebuild phenotypic complexity 

      Fernández-Chacón, Albert; Villegas-Ríos, David; Moland, Even; Baskett, Marissa L.; Olsen, Esben Moland; Carlson, Stephanie M. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Harvest mortality typically truncates the harvested species' size structure, thereby reducing phenotypic complexity, which can lead to reduced population productivity, increased population variability, and selection on an ...
    • Sea temperature effects on depth use and habitat selection in a marine fish community 

      Freitas, Carla; Villegas-Ríos, David; Moland, Even; Olsen, Esben Moland (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Understanding the responses of aquatic animals to temperature variability is essential to predict impacts of future climate change and to inform conservation and management. Most ectotherms such as fish are expected to ...
    • Selection on fish personality differs between a no-take marine reserve and fished areas 

      Thorbjørnsen, Susanna Huneide; Moland, Even; Villegas-Ríos, David; Bleeker, Katinka; Knutsen, Halvor; Olsen, Esben Moland (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Marine reserves can protect fish populations by increasing abundance and body size, but less is known about the effect of protection on fish behaviour. We looked for individual consistency in movement behaviours of sea ...
    • Time at risk: individual spatial behaviour drives fitness and marine protected area effectiveness 

      Villegas-Ríos, David; Claudet, Joachim; Freitas, Carla; Moland, Even; Thorbjørnsen, Susanna Huneide; Alonso-Fernández, Alexandre; Olsen, Esben Moland (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The effectiveness of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) depends on the mobility of the populations that are the target of protection, with sedentary species likely to spend more time under protection even within small MPAs. ...
