Name: Joshua Fielding
Interests:
I am currently working for the Australian Government in Fisheries Management, on tropical prawn fishery. This fishery occurs in the far north of Australia and uses the trawling method. Day to day tasks include creating the policy and legislation that fisheries need to abide and operate by, i.e. the rules that they need to follow while conducting their fishing operations. This can come in the form of areas they can and can’t operate and the methods and gear that they can use, or how much of a species they are allowed to catch.

  • Next year GAME will address the question whether artificial light at night affects the growth, photosynthetic performance and defence capacity of macroalgae.
    You want to participate in GAME 2024? Information about the project, the application procedure, participation requirements and why GAME might be interesting for you can be found here ►

  • Completed GAME projects

    All GAME projects are presented here in the overview. As of 2012, there is a final report in German for each project, which can be downloaded as a PDF.

    There are also blogs by the teams from the various project years at www.oceanblogs.org.

  • Since 2011, GAME has been supported and advised by a Board of Trustees.

  • We would like to thank all sponsors who have made GAME 2022 possible through their financial commitment!

    Become a supporter of GAME!

    From 2002 to 2008, GAME was funded by the Mercator Foundation and subsequently by the Kiel University Foundation and GEOMAR. Since 2011, supporters from the German foundation landscape, from the (predominantly maritime) industry, as well as private donors could be gained.

    To ensure that the program can continue in the future, we are looking for additional supporters who would like to get involved in marine research, the education of students and the international networking of scientists. Make your donation possible for future students from all over the world to participate in this international training program that combines applied research with excellent education.

    If you are interested or have any questions, please contact:
