The following people assisted with one or more projects associated with Cheryl Barnes and/or the IMF Lab (via collecting field and/or lab data, conducting exploratory analyses, facilitating outreach programs, or providing scientific guidance). Resulting publications and research applications would not have been possible without their time, effort, and most importantly...enthusiasm! Countless volunteers, fishers, and resource managers have also contributed to our understanding of groundfish dynamics in the North Pacific. Please also check out the photo gallery, which highlights some of our collaborative work.

If you're interested in professional development opportunities or collaborating on a project, get in touch — we'd love to hear from you!
