Caroline Sanchez works in the Department of Fisheries at the South Pacific Commission (SPC) in Noumea, New Caledonia.
Caroline is working on the ecology of pelagic fishes (eg tunas) by analysing their stomach contents. She identifies the prey species and then enters this information in a database.
She visited the Australian Museum to confirm species identifications with specialists, and to complete the identification of unidentified specimens from the Pacific. One of the important aspects of her visit was to work with the extensive reprint collection held in the Fish Department.
Caroline visited on 20 and 21 March 2006.
