Getting Fishy in a Warmer World

Talk Adults

Join UTS PhD candidate Ellery Johnson for a fascinating discussion about what changing marine environments mean for fish.

There are deep links between the land and water. As rivers flow to the sea, they collect and carry a whole lot of stuff including carbon, which then has an impact on marine life in estuaries and the ocean. Ellery Johnson explains why carbon from the land environment could be important to estuarine fish species and considers whether fish eat trees.

Ellery is a PhD Candidate at the Freshwater and Estuarine Research Group at the University of Technology Sydney. He works on understanding the link between terrestrial carbon, freshwater inflows and secondary production in our estuaries.
