Understanding the movement ecology of marine fishes using aquatic biotelemetry.
Jena is a PhD candidate specializing in the movement ecology of marine fishes and has extensive experience in at-sea field research and analysis of aquatic movement data. At NIOZ, she is currently employing a technical knowledge and hands-on experience in the deployment of satellite and acoustic telemetry technologies to develop a large-scale telemetry study for large fish in the Dutch Wadden Sea.
