Research Interests
1. Ecological safety and environmental protection of marine ranching
2. Behavioral ecology of sea cucumber


Academic Achievements
(1) The main economic biological behavior characteristics of marine ranching were identified
In order to solve the problem that the behavioral parameters of special artificial reefs such as sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus and fish are not clear, a platform for behavioral observation and analysis of aquatic organisms based on environmental parameter regulation and video information collection and analysis was constructed. The Behavioral Ecological Characteristics of main economic organisms such as Apostichopus japonicus were identified, and the key parameters such as structural design and spatial layout of artificial reefs were obtained, which provided theoretical basis for habitat optimization on foundation.
(2) An integrated marine ranching environment monitoring system was constructed
In order to solve the problem of "invisible" of marine ranching environment resources, the ship based and Island based meteorological and hydrological environment monitoring platforms were established in the typical marine ranching of Laoshan Bay, Haizhou Bay, Laizhou Bay and Xiangyun Bay in the Yellow Sea and Bohai Sea according to the characteristics of the sea area; the PC data integration software and mobile phone app were developed to realize the long-term continuous real-time monitoring of environmental resources data and the connection of data among marine ranching Through sharing, it provides data support for marine ranching carrying capacity and risk factor assessment.
(3) The carrying capacity and risk factors of marine ranching were evaluated
According to the monitoring data of environmental resources, an assessment model of carrying capacity was established, which provided a scientific basis for formulating reasonable resource supplement and harvesting strategy. According to the risk factors such as Enteromorpha prolifera transit and high temperature in summer, the threshold value was determined to provide theoretical reference for the establishment of risk assessment, early warning and prediction mechanism of marine ranching. Combined with the marine ranching environmental monitoring system, the early warning of Green tides transit in Laoshan Bay and Haizhou Bay in summer was realized.
