Leader of the Invasive Fish Group

Adam Daniel leads Intermediate Outcome 2 (IO2); Pest Fish Management for Lake Biodiversity Restoration. This research will develop methods that enable our end users to control pest fish population. It aims to understand the biology of pest fish in New Zealand, and use this information to develop new tools and technologies for early detection of pest fish incursions, and to control existing pest fish populations. The key components of IO2 include understanding dispersal mechanisms of pest fish, chemical control, developing genetic tools to improve biosurveillance, and predictive modelling of water bodies at risk from pest fish invasions.

Adam came from Washington State and graduated from Washington State University in 1997 with a degree in Natural Resource Science. Since then he has become an international expert in fish telemetry working on salmonids and cyprinids conducting work telemetry work in the United States and New Zealand. He has extensive experience in the use of surgically implanted aquatic radio and acoustic transmitters, as well as mark-recapture techniques. Adam is also familiar with GIS and GPS systems and the analysis of special data. Adam worked with New Zealand pest fish using radio and acoustic telemetry under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Brendan Hicks. The goal of his current project was to detect exploitable stages in the life history of koi carp (Cyprinus carpio). He also conducted tank trials to improve the surgical procedures used to implant radio and acoustic tags in fish.
