Katja Enberg is the head of the Research and advice program for the Norwegian Sea at Institute of Marine Research. She is an expert in theoretical and evolutionary models of fish life histories and fishing-induced evolution. She also chairs the ICES working group WGWIDE where the annual assessments of widely distributed pelagics (such as Norwegian spring spawning herring, NEA mackerel, blue whiting) are carried out.

Nikos Nikolioudakis is a postdoc in the EcoNorSe project and a member of the Pelagic Fish group at IMR. Nikos has his PhD on Trophic Ecology of small pelagic fish from Greece, and he has been working with pelagic fish for more than ten years as a student and later as a post doctoral researcher. In the EcoNorSe project he will be dealing with spatio-temporal data correlations in an attempt to improve our understanding on species interactions and habitat preferences, using state-of-the-art methods and software.

Aril Slotte is the head of Pelagic Fish Research Group, which included large involvement in annual monitoring, assessment and advice of commercially important pelagic fish stocks. Main research topic is biological studies of herring at all life stages with focus on population dynamics, population structure and connectivity, migration, energy utilisation and allocation, behaviour, reproduction and recruitment processes.

Erling Kåre Stenevik from the Pelagic Fish group is responsible for assessment and advice for Norwegian spring spawning herring and has in-depth knowledge of existing data. His main research interest is to understand what causes recruitment variability, particularly in pelagic fish such as herring in the Norwegian Sea.

Eneko Bachiller is a post doc working on trophic ecology of the pelagic fish in the Norwegian Sea and in the Bay of Biscay. Eneko spent the first two years of his postdoc at the Pelagic fish group at IMR, but is now in 2016 back at AZTI (Marine Research Division) & Univ. Basque Country (Dept. Ecology). In this project Eneko is contributing particularly on WP2 with the dietary data analysis, and he will be making comparative diet analysis between the southern and northern habitat of Atlantic mackerel.
