Endowed Chair in Fisheries and Ocean Health

The endowed chair in Fisheries and Ocean Health heads a diverse program that provides scientific data for management of ocean resources. The current focus is on migration of patterns of marine life and the role of estuaries and near-shore waters in sustaining marine populations.

Stunz’s research includes understanding the roles of apex predators in the Gulf of Mexico ecosystems. In 2011, his project that tags and tracks tiger sharks across the oceans was featured in the National Geographic Wild Channel’s “Sharks in the City.”
