Dr. Mike Dalton is an Industry Economist at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle. He joined AFSC in 2006 to work on the bioeconomics of Alaska's fisheries. Building models that link the bioeconomic effects of ocean acidification on Alaska's crab stocks to potential regional economic impacts is an important part of his research. He received B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Minnesota, was a post-doctoral researcher at Stanford University, and an associate professor at California State University Monterey Bay. Dr. Dalton’s current research includes estimating international demand for Alaska's seafood commodities, and analyzing bioeconomic tradeoffs associated with multispecies ecological relationships, population dynamics, and uncertainty.
