1. 以耳石δ13C與δ18O分析解析深海魚類生活史。
    科學界目前對於深海底棲性魚類的生活史了解非常地不足,主要是受限於採樣與直接觀察深海魚類的困難度很高,我們藉由耳石δ18O微量分析技術,利用微量採樣器(micromill)與同位素比值質譜儀(IRMS, Finnigan MAT 253)進行分析,藉此重建魚類所經歷的溫度,進一步推測深度變化,結果發現深海魚類(鼠尾鱈)確實具有【個體發育垂直洄游行為】,不同種類的垂直洄游距離不盡相同,有些種類的仔魚在下沉過程中已經完成變態成為稚魚,有些種類的仔魚則是在沉降到深海海床上時才完成變態,這種仔稚魚階段的【個體發育垂直下沉行為】是連結底棲性成魚階段與浮游性仔魚階段非常重要的策略,此研究方法能夠重建深海魚類全生活史的定居或是垂直洄游的行為。

2. 快速種類篩驗檢測技術之研究

3. 洄游魚類生活史之研究
