Area of Expertise:
Andres Araujo is a Research Biologist at the DFO’s Pacific Biological Station in Nanaimo. His current work focuses on employing genetic data to support the management of several large-scale fisheries in British Columbia. He also performs research that examines trade-offs in aquatic resource management by developing quantitative tools for assessing actions under uncertainty. Some examples include the in-season management of Fraser River sockeye salmon, an ecosystem model to evaluate the survival of coho salmon in the Strait of Georgia, and a population viability analysis to estimate the responses of resident killer whales to Chinook abundance.
