Welcome to the Davoren Lab

 Our research program focuses on predator-prey interactions, where we investigate the biology and behaviour of important forage fish species in northern marine ecosystems and how this shapes the biology of top predators, primarily marine birds and whales. 

Highlights

Confirmed presence of capelin in Musgrave Harbour

"They may be small, but the late arrival of capelin in Newfoundland and Labrador this summer has had some mighty biological impacts, according to one researcher"

Ever wonder what humpback whales sound like and why we should care? 

Head on over to Mikala's website to hear some of the hydrophone recordings of whales in Newfoundland and learn more about her research!

 

Watch Anna's 3 Minute Thesis video to understand why we are studying whale calls!

Citizen Science Project Launched

Dr. Davoren has been part of a collaborative citizen science project with World Wildlife Fund Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada to help monitor the spatial extent and timing of capelin spawning in Atlantic Canada and Arctic regions.
