Bruno Ernande is currently senior scientist at the Channel and North Sea Fisheries Unit from IFREMER (Boulogne-sur-Mer, France). He holds an MSc in Ecology (1997) from the Ecole Normale Supérieure and the University Pierre et Marie-Curie (Paris, France) and a PhD in Marine Evolutionary Ecology (2001) from the University of La Rochelle (France) for his work on the genetics and the evolution of phenotypic plasticity. He was appointed as a lecturer and teaching assistant at the University of La Rochelle from 1998 to 2001 and as a post-doctoral researcher in the Evolution and Ecology Program of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA, Laxenburg, Austria) from 2001 to 2004. He was hired as junior scientist at IFREMER (France) in 2004.

B. Ernande’s research interests include evolutionary ecology and life history of marine fish and molluscs, fisheries-induced evolution, fish habitats, marine food webs, predator-prey relationships, marine community ecology, aquaculture and fisheries. Most of his research combines both empirical and modelling approaches in the fields of population and quantitative genetics, bioenergetics, life-history theory, population dynamics and evolutionary dynamics. 

B. Ernande has been the Coordinator of IFREMER’s STRADA project on the ecology and evolution of exploited fish species (2.1 M€/yr and 35 persons/yr) from 2005 to 2008. He has been involved in 12 European (8) and national (4) research projects or networks. As for services to the profession, B. Ernande is co-chair of the ICES Working Group on Fisheries-Induced evolution (WGEVO), member of the Working Group “Mer” of AllEnvi Alliance, member of the Editorial Board of OIKOS and serves as reviewers for several others journals.
