    Walt Golet, Ph.D. | Assistant Professor, University of Maine's School of Marine Sciences | Research Scientist, Gulf of Maine Research Institute

    Tunas, billfish and sharks are some of the most fascinating animals on the planet. These creatures are Highly Migratory Species (HMS) which means they cross ocean basins, elevate their internal body temperature, swim to depths in excess of 5,000 feet within minutes and navigate with the precision of a GPS. Walt works with a network of commercial and recreational fishermen that provide him with information on and samples from the fish that they catch. Walt's lab then analyzes the data to better understand their life history. This information also informs stock assessment models which may reduce uncertainty in their current and future projections.
