Research interests

My primary research focus is on fish conservation and alien fish invasions. The research is multidisciplinary and focuses not only on describing natural systems and processes but also incorporates research on understanding how humans alter and benefit from aquatic systems. It includes assessments of the distribution and impacts of alien fishes in aquatic ecosystems ranging from headwater streams in the Eastern Cape to estuarine Lakes in the Wilderness National Park; biological and ecological investigations on fishes in both invaded and natural environments; assessments of fisheries based on indigenous and alien fishes and, more recently the role that alien fishes play in subsistence and recreational fisheries in South Africa and other African countries.
