About Ann Larsson

My main interest is in biohydrodynamics, i.e. how water flow affects organisms in the sea and their ecological interactions. Presently, I'm working with a project on olfactory navigation in Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus), trying to resolve how the prey tracking success is affected by the flow regime. The project has applications for the Norway lobster creel fishery. For my PhD, I studied how flow affects settlement and recruitment in the barnacle Balanus improvisus with applications for antifouling (fouling release coatings). After my PhD, I have also worked in a project on the effects of sediment and drill cutting exposure on the cold-water coral Lophelia pertusa. I am at present continually involved in research about Lophelia pertusa recruitment and restoration of cold-water coral reefs.
