Juliane Struve is an environmental scientist who is interested in developing and applying models to address environmental management problems in aquatic ecosystems. Past research and consulting expertise includes modeling pollutant dispersion in mangrove estuaries, point discharges in rivers and estuaries, optimal water quality management in tropical aquaculture ponds, and diffuse pollution from urban and agricultural land use. Juliane currently carries out research into the habitat use, movement and dispersion of coastal fish.
Spatial Dynamics of Fish Populations
Sarasota Bay Study
Spatial dynamics of snook populations are of much interest to fisheries management because of the continuous loss of snook habitat and the high activity of recreational anglers and conflicting uses of aquatic resources on the highly developed coasts of Florida. From a combination of modeling studies and data analysis in collaboration with FWC we try to gain insight into the potential benefits of habitat restoration, stocking and changes in fishing regulations for snook.
A large number of adult snook were tagged and monitored by Mote Marine Laboratory in collaboration with the University of Florida between 2004 and 2008. Many of these individuals could be observed over several years. Click below to see some examples (Google Earth required).
