Profil Prof. Dr. Robert Arlinghaus

In my group, we primarily study the social, economic and biological dimensions of angling as a social-ecological system. In addition, I study the ecology and evolution of fish stocks in natural and artificial aquatic ecosystems, with particular emphasis on anthropogenic stressors, e.g. fishing pressure. We pursue a strictly interdisciplinary research approach in which the natural and the social sciences are coupled.
