Richard Malloy’s research is focused on bycatch reduction through collaborative research with commercial fisheries. Richard joined the Anderson Cabot Center after completing his Master’s Degree at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth SMAST, where he worked with the sea scallop fishery to compare optical and dredge field survey techniques when assessing sea scallop abundance and habitat results on Georges Bank.
Currently at the Anderson Cabot Center, his research includes studies developing and field testing whale release buoy rope throughout New England fisheries, field testing an electronic decoy for reducing elasmobranch bycatch in pelagic longline fisheries, and rope-less fishing: testing an innovative prototype for preventing whale entanglement.
