Episode 14: Studying the Fish Biodiversity of Mesophotic Reefs


​​​In this summer series of podcasts, we introduce the winners of our Teledyne Marine Academic Grant for 2020. This grant offers universities and institutions the opportunity to utilize several of our flagship products free of charge for up to a six-month period to support their research programs.

In this episode, we meet Tim Noyes, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Salford in Manchester, England, and a research specialist at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences in Bermuda. Tim's research focuses on determining spatial and temporal trends of mesophotic reef fish biodiversity. Using the awarded Sentinel V100 ADCP from RD Instruments and the Benthos R500 Acoustic Release system, Tim will be working to quantify the hydrodynamic variability within the mesophotic coral ecosystems and adjacent shallow-water reefs.

You can find out more about Tim's research at BIOS on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. You can also follow Tim Noyes on Twitter and on Instagram.
