Professor Jason Hall-Spencer

Professor of Marine Biology, Jason is one of the world’s leading experts investigating the major stressors affecting the health of our seas and the marine organisms impacted by climate change. Jason’s pioneering technique of using underwater volcanic areas high in CO2 as natural analogues for future climate change has become a sector standard, adopted in the Pacific, Caribbean and Europe. He has demonstrated how ocean acidification affects fish reproduction. Jason and his collaborators on RELIONMED are researching methods of tackling invasive lionfish that, due to the widening of the Suez Canal and rising sea temperatures, have populated the Mediterranean and disrupted the local ecosystem.
