Research Interest

Dr. Manuel Hidalgo is a fisheries oceanographer and ecologist working as senior scientist for the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO, CSIC) at the Oceanographic Center of the Balearic Islands (Palma, Spain) in the Group of Ecosystem Oceanography (GRECO). He got his PhD degree at the University of Vigo in 2007 and stayed as postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oslo (Norway) until 2011, when he moved back to Spain to work at IEO. His research focuses on the impact of fishing activity and climate variability on the ecological mechanisms that regulate exploited populations, communities and ecosystems.

He particularly works on:

- the hydroclimatic influence on the spatial ecology of early life stages of exploited species, including survival and connectivity processes,
- synergistic effects of climate and fisheries on vital traits and spatial and temporal dynamics of exploited species,
- processes and indicators of resistance and resilience of impacted marine ecosystems, and
- adaptation and mitigation tools to face climate change impacts.

Dr. Hidalgo has chaired for six years (2014-2019) the integrated ecosystem assessment working group of ICES COMEDA, is currently active member of the working group SIMWG and serves as national alternate of the Scientific Committee of ICES SCICOM. He collaborates with FAO as scientific advisor on projects related to climate change impacts on fisheries and ecosystems vulnerability, and on multidisciplinary approaches to definition of stocks structure. He is member of the panel of experts of the UN for the development of 'II World Ocean Assessment' and chapter co-author in the IPCC (AR6). He also serves as scientific editor of ICES Journal of Marine Science since 2013.
