Tyson Jones is the Redmap Australia sightings manager and a PhD candidate at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS). His research explores nocturnal reef ecology across both temperate and tropical reefs, and studies the impacts of diver disturbance on fish behaviour. With a primary interest in reef associated fishes and invertebrates, Tyson has accumulated over 500 scientific dives assessing reef biodiversity across all major reef networks surrounding Australia. Beyond studying reefs, Tyson has extensive experience studying estuarine ecosystems, conducting complimentary habitat and fish assemblage surveys to prioritise restoration efforts for threatened estuarine habitats.
