Michel Kaiser

Michel Kaiser is the Professor of Marine Conservation Ecology at the School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University. He is an independent Member of the Joint Nature Conservation Committee, the UK Marine Science Coordination Committee, and he chairs the Seafish Industry Authority’s Science Advisory Group. After gaining his Ph.D. in 1991, he joined CEFAS to lead research on the effects of human activities (fishing and aquaculture) on the marine environment. He joined Bangor University in 1998 where he has expanded these interests to encompass social and economic consequences of different approaches of managing fishing activities. He has authored over 180 peer reviewed publications and has written or edited 5 books.His current research focuses on techniques to achieve sustainable use of the marine environment, with a particular emphasis on developing techniques to minimise ecological impacts of fisheries and aquaculture, and research to underpin the appropriate use of marine protected areas. The latter focuses on recovery and dispersal dynamics in seabed communities and integration of spatial social and economic valuation of marine biodiversity. His research group provides scientific advice to the Welsh Government and the Isle of Man Government.
