Costa-Pierce has a 40-year career in the marine/freshwater sciences. His broad research interest is in "ocean foods ecosystems": How local seafood systems throughout the world  interact with marine ecosystems, fisheries, aquaculture, and peoples. He has worked at 11 American state and private universities from Hawaii to Maine, and internationally in SE Asia and Subsaharan Africa for multilateral and bilateral agencies such ICLARM (The World Fish Center), The World Bank, The Asian Development Bank, GTZ-Germany, and the USAID. He is a... Read More

My research is grounded in marine ecology and integrates and interdisciplinary approach. Research disciplines include aquaculture, fisheries and coastal management. Previous projects have been based in freshwater, estuarine and marine habitats including temperate lakes, Atlantic rocky shorelines, temperate barrier-beach lagoons, tropical coral reefs and Pacific glacial fjords. I enjoy working on projects that look at biotic and abiotic dynamics and interactions as they apply to conservation and/or social development issues. Previous and current research projects include post-smolt salmon migration, carrying... Read More

Joe grew up on a tidal salt marsh in Long Island NY.  He spent his early years collecting and rearing insects as a hobby.  He went to college majoring in Zoology and published his first paper based on his undergraduate research on cockroach development.  He chose a graduate school where he could continue his interest in insect development and on earning his Ph. D. did a post doctoral in Biometry and another in Biochemistry.  Joe's major interest is in using... Read More
