Research Interests:


Dr. Brown's program was composed of both fundamental and applied research. The fundamental area of interest is applying theories of behavioural ecology to studies on larval and juvenile fishes. Dr. Brown and his Graduate students were involved in examining the development of foraging and predator-avoidance behaviour using the paradigm of threat-sensitive foraging, and examining the functional significance of kin-recognition in two species of salmonid fishes. The applied area of research is aquaculture. Interests in this area are focused on developing new species for cold-water aquaculture and improving culture techniques for various cold-water species.
