Heidi Dewar received her Ph.D. in marine biology from Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 1993. Her thesis focused on the physiology of tropical tunas. Since that time Dr. Dewar has focused her efforts on the development and application of electronic tagging technologies with the goal of asking more complex questions about fish in their natural environment. She has used a range of satellite, archival and acoustic tags to study fish from manta rays and billfish to tunas and sharks. Her main interest is in the interplay between physiology and environment in determining the movements and behaviors of fish. Heidi works with the team in the highly migratory species division collecting biological data in support of management
