Jolien Goossens

Jolien Goossens investigates the movement ecology of European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) in the Southern North Sea. The general goals of this PhD project are to understand seabass habitat use in Belgian waters, to map seasonal migrations and to link these movement patterns to available fisheries data. In order to observe the obscure movements of fish, acoustic data storage tags (ADST) are implanted in seabass. This technique allows to research both fine-scale behaviour as well as basin-wide migration trajectories. The PhD is funded by the Flanders Research Foundations and the project is a collaboration between Ghent University and the institutes VLIZ and ILVO. Before starting the PhD in January 2019, Jolien worked as a fisheries policy advisor at the Flemish government and as a science officer at the Flanders Marine Institute. For her master’s degree, she studied marine biology in the EMBC+ program (International Master of Science in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation).
