Andre Eric Punt

Born in Cape Town, South Africa in February 1965, André studied at the University of Cape Town and was awarded a B.Sc. (Hons) in Computer Science in 1986, M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics in 1988 and Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics in 1991. As a Research Officer, he worked for 5 years on the Benguela Ecology Program. In 1992, he joined the School of Fisheries at University of Washington as Research Associate. He came to Australia in 1994 to work as a Resource Modeller for the Division of Marine Research at CSIRO, where he made a significant contribution to a large number of stock assessments in Australia. In recognition of his achievements, he was received the K.R. Allen Award from the Australian Society for Fish Biology in 1999.

Currently, André is a Professor in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington, where he is currently mentoring graduate students, and teaching courses in probability and statistics, fisheries stock assessment, and decision and risk analysis. The methods that André has developed for assessment of renewable resource populations are used by national and international fisheries organizations to provide quantitative scientific advice for fisheries and wildlife management. These include new methods for assessing fish and marine mammal populations based on Bayesian and risk analysis methods. A few examples are given below and his papers are listed in the references. Descriptions of specific research projects are given on the website, http://fish.washington.edu/research/MPAM/ of theMarine Population Assessment & Management Group.

André is a prolific writer with hundreds of published papers and reports, only some of which are listed in the references. He works with an enthusiastic group of young graduate students who apply a multi-disciplinary approach to develop quantitative methods for use in marine resource management of fish, cetacean and pinniped populations. The primary focus is the marine resources off the west coast of North America, and there is close collaboration between MPAM staff and students and the US National Marine Fisheries Service’s Northwest and Alaska Science Centers. Research is partially funded through the NMFS Stock Assessment Improvement Plan and the NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship in Population Dynamics. These programs are designed to foster NMFS-university partnerships and to train students in applied population modeling.

Significant advances in fisheries science

  • Development of new methods to account for spatial structure when conducting fisheries assessments. The results of this research have been used to improve population assessments, to integrate Marine Protected Areas into fisheries management, and to extend current ecosystem models.
  • Quantification of the uncertainty associated with estimates of population status and of forecasts using Bayesian techniques.
  • Development of population dynamics models to include a broader suite of factors, such as the impact of climate change, on population dynamics processes.
  • Testing of fisheries management systems using the Management Strategy Evaluation approach.
  • Development and distribution of software to allow fishery scientists to apply the methods generally.

International Research Achievements & Collaboration

André has established an international reputation through his work for theInternational Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas and the International Whaling Commission. His ongoing international research collaboration is extensive and involves partnerships in Australia and South Africa. In Australia, he collaborates with many research agencies including CSIRO and Fisheries Victoria, and has been involved in improvements to many stock assessment models currently in use in Australia. André is also an expert member of the External Review Panel Marine Resource Assessment and Management Group in South Africa (http://www.mth.uct.ac.za/maram/workshops.html).
