Barbara Zorica

Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries

Laboratory of Fisheries Science and Management of Pelagic and Demersal Resources

My research is mainly related to the biology and ecology of pelagic fish species – reproduction, feeding ecology, growth and population dynamics. For the last couple of years, I have devoted myself to sampling and studying fish early life stages (ichthyoplankton - eggs, larvae) in order to expand our knowledge regarding its spawning and nursery grounds.
