Head shot of Trevor Krabbenhoft, University at Buffalo faculty expert on fish ecology, aquatic ecosystems and invasive species.

Trevor Krabbenhoft is a fish ecologist and evolutionary biologist.

His lab studies the biology of fish in a changing world. His team is interested in how fish and aquatic ecosystems respond to human-induced changes, such as climate change, invasive species and fishing pressure.

Among other topics, Krabbenhoft’s research explores how genome structure shapes the interactions between fish and their environment and whether they are able to respond (or not) to changing conditions. He is also collaborating with engineers to develop new tools, such as flexible electronic sensors, that could help scientists track the movement of individual fish and learn about the animals’ habitat.

While much of his work focuses on the Great Lakes, he is involved in collaborative efforts to understand how climate change is affecting fish and fisheries worldwide (including the distribution, phenology, demographics, evolution and assemblage dynamics of fish).
