Research Biography

He started his PhD at Macquarie University in 2003 on the biology and ecology of wobbegong sharks in relation to the commercial fishery in NSW. In 2007, he started running the Australian Acoustic Tagging and Monitoring System (AATAMS) part of the Integrated Marine Observing System program (IMOS) during which he deployed acoustic receivers around Australia and created a national network of acoustic telemetry users. He joined MISA through a joint position between SARDI - Aquatic Sciences and Flinders University where he acted as shark ecologist and Lecturer between 2009 and 2014. Since 2014, he has been at Flinders University full-time.

Over the years, A/Prof Huveners has worked on a wide range of species including wobbegongs, Port Jackson sharks, grey reef sharks, bronze whalers, dusky sharks, blacktip reef sharks, nervous sharks, smooth rays, fiddler rays, manta rays, and white sharks.
