Given the multidisciplinary nature of the issues and problems facing marine resource management, the FEME group has strategic collaboration with other colleagues throughout the world, from both Universities and Research Institutes.

Dr. Rashid Sumaila 


Professor and Director, Fisheries Economics Research Unit, the University of British Columbia, Canada. He is deeply interested in how economics, through integration with ecology and other disciplines, can be used to help ensure that environmental resources are sustainably managed for the benefit of all generations. He has authored over 175 journal articles; including in Science and Nature. He is winner of the 2013 American Fisheries Society Excellence in Public Outreach, the Stanford Leopold Leadership Fellowship and the Pew Marine Fellowship. Sumaila has given talks at the UN Rio+20, the WTO, the White House, the Canadian Parliament and the British House of Lords.

Dr. Marta Coll

Her research focuses on understanding patterns and processes that characterize marine ecosystems and, in particular, changes of, and threats to, marine biodiversity. She studies population, community and food-web dynamics linked with human activities (such as fisheries, climate change, eutrophication, and invasive species), and how these translate into changes in ecosystem structure and functioning, and services that humans obtain from the ocean. She develops and applies a variety of ecological analyses such as ecosystem modelling techniques and statistical tools, and she uses historical data, fisheries statistics, experimental results and field data sets.

Dr. Sebastián Villasante

He is Professor of Economics at University of Santiago de Compsostela (Spain). His research focuses on assessing the economic and social contribution of the oceans at multiple scales. Dr. Villasante has published more than 70 papers in scientific journals. Since early 2014, he is the Co-chair of the ICES Working Group on Resilience and Marine Ecosystem Services, and the Coordinator of the ESP on Working Group Economic and Monetary Valuation of Ecosystem Services. He was visiting scientist at University of Tromsø, Stanford University, School of Aquatic and Fisheries Sciences of the University of Washington, Stockholm Resilience Centre (Sweden), The Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics (Sweden) and University of British Columbia (Canada).
