Johnstone Omukoto Omuhaya
Johnstone is interested in the linkages between coastal and marine ecosystems/habitats, ecosystem services from these habitats and contribution of the ecosystem services to poverty alleviation in coastal communities together with the accompanying management strategies, synergies and trade-offs. He aims to gain an understanding of ecosystem services use dynamics, ecology and people’s dependence on coastal and marine resources within a socio-ecological context. He has experience with various management options used in coastal tropical mixed species fisheries and he considers these as a significant input towards studying linkages among socio-ecological system states, types and quantities of fish species that are considered important for human wellbeing and potential ecosystem management strategies.
