May 15th ‘Long Island Sound and Beyond; Ecosystem and Resilience’

mailDr. David Hudson is the research scientist at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, directing the research and conservation program. Before then, he served as an assistant professor at a small college in Atlanta, teaching and doing research on crustaceans. Dave is fluent in Spanish, having lived in Bogotá, Colombia as a Fulbright Fellow after earning his Ph.D. from UConn. His research uses the behavior and physiology of crustaceans and fish to determine the effects of changes in the physical environment (temperature, salinity, sound, etc.) on distributions, survival, and ecology of marine and aquatic organisms. He is also interested in how changing human behaviors impact the survival of species, and how aquaculture can be used to augment food security, economic security, and conservation of marine and aquatic animals.

mail2Dave was invited to serve on the IUCN’s Species Survival Commission freshwater crustacean specialist group, and will serve as an adviser to the AZA Aquatic Invertebrate Taxon Advisory Group, particularly focusing on applying his experience with assessing stress in invertebrates and invertebrate physiology to questions of animal husbandry and welfare. He and his wife are avid skiers and SCUBA divers and they reside in Norwalk with their three young children.
