Alysha Cypher is a fish physiologist and ecotoxicologist who came to the PWSSC after a National Research Council postdoc at the NOAA Northwest Fisheries Science Center. Her research focuses on how environmental perturbations like pollution and climate change alter fish physiology at multiple life stages. She is interested in how impacts at the individual level influence population dynamics and interspecific interactions and how this data can be used to prioritize sensitive species for fisheries management. She started her postdoctoral research position with the PWSSC and joined the Herring Research and Monitoring team in 2020.
