Dr. Sulikowski has masters’ degrees in marine biology and physiology as well as a PhD in Zoology. His interdisciplinary research integrates aspects of fisheries biology such as reproduction, maturity, age and growth, the physiological responses to stress and how these parameters influence by-catch mortality, as well as investigating the composition, movements, and spatial/temporal distribution of commercially valuable species in both the coastal and pelagic environments. His work has been featured on such media outlets as the BBC series "Rise of Animals”, "ocean mysteries series", Discovery Channel’s Shark week, Nat Geo Wild, as well as many other local, regional and national affiliates.
