About Mark Johnson

Dr Magnus Johnson is a Senior Lecturer in Environmental and Marine Sciences at the University of Hull. Having spent his formative years in the Shetland Isles, immersed in fishing culture, he has always had a strong relationship with the sea and an affinity for fisherfolk. He has research interests in an eclectic array of topics including shrimp eyes, cleaner fish, krill behaviour, tropical ecology, shrimp taxonomy, lobster ecology and the interaction of windfarms and fisheries. He recently edited a volume in the Advances Series on Nephrops norvegicus. He is an associate editor for the Journal of Crustacean Biology and consultant editor for the Marine Stewardship Council's Science Series. He is currently the Hull University lead on an GBP3 million FP7 project that is developing hatchery technology for Nephrops and looking at protocols for improving their survival as discards. In his spare time Magnus is a member of the Slow Fish movement which advocates better knowledge for the consumer of what we are eating, easier access to quality local marine produce and a "broad footprint lightly trod".
