My study is motivated by the question how marine stock enhancement and sea ranching programs can be effective for fishery and conservation goals.
Current interests include:
1) evaluating impacts of hatchery release and escapement from fish farms on wild populations,
2) estimating population structure in high gene flow species, and
3) understanding mechanisms of environmental adaptation.
I thank Hirohisa Kishino for collaboration of statistical modeling and population genetics analysis,
and Katsuyuki Hamasaki for early life history study of endangered species.
