John Morrongiello

John is a Senior Lecturer in Marine and Freshwater Biology at the University of Melbourne, where he leads the Quantitative Aquatic Ecology and Evolution research group. He is also the Vice President of the Australian Society for Fish Biology. John works across both marine and freshwater systems where he investigates how fish respond to environmental change on contemporary and evolutionary time scales. His current research is focussed on understanding how commercial and recreational fishery activity, oceanic warming, and extreme events like marine heatwaves combine to impact on fishes and fishery productivity. John asks questions at different levels of biological organisation, ranging from individuals to assemblages, using field-based and experimental techniques. John’s passion for fish ecology and evolution is matched in his university teaching and community engagement activities. John is the regional Redmap Steering Committee representative for Redmap Victoria.
