Dorte Bekkevold



Dorte Bekkevold is Senior Researcher at the Technical University of Denmark National Institute of Aquatic Resources. She is since many years a leading profile in fish stock genetics, linking basic research on population structure to the use of this information in management and conservation. Personal website


Craig Primmer




Craig Primmer is Academy Professor of Biology at University of Helsinki. His work focuses on understanding the molecular processes underlying adaptation in salmonid fishes and applying this knowledge in conservation and management. Personal website


Elisabeth Sahlsten




Elisabet Sahlsten is an analyst at the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management. She works at the Science Affairs Department with strategic planning including the development and quality assurance of monitoring methods. Elisabeth has a PhD in Marine Microbioloy.


BONUS BAMBI speakers

Carl André is Professor in Marine Ecology at University of Gothenburg, and a knowledgeable researcher on cod genetics. Together with colleagues in Norway and Denmark he has been involved in comprehensive studies of differentiation among local stocks of cod in the Baltic and the North Sea. Personal website

Kerstin Johannesson is Professor of Marine Ecology at University of Gothenburg. Her expertise is on local adaptation, including adaptation of marine species to the Baltic Sea. Kerstin leads the BONUS-Bambi project. Personal website

Per Jonsson is Professor in Marine Ecology and Biohydrodynamics at the University of Gothenburg. His expertise is on modelling marine dispersal and connectivity in the seascape based on oceanographic models combined with biological traits. His recent research on dispersal barriers and connectivity with implications for optimal design of MPAs in the Baltic Sea is very relevant for management of genetic diversity. Personal website

Linda Laikre is Professor of Population Genetics at University of Stockholm, and with a long standing focus on conservation genetics. Her work spans from conservation genetics of wolves to fishes. Personal website

Annica Sandström is Professor in political science at Luleå University of Technology. Her work includes empirical studies on the socio-political complexities of marine governance as well as more theory-driven work on policy implementation, policy networks and the role of policy coalitions and learning in natural resource governance. Personal website

Lovisa Wennerström has a PhD in population genetics from last year and her doctoral thesis largely focused on genetic variation patterns of Baltic Sea species. In particular, Lovisa has extensive knowledge on the genetics of the Baltic pike. Personal website
