Charles Menza is a spatial ecologist and project leader at the Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment (CCMA). He has been with CCMA for nine years, and has worked on a variety of research projects to better understand the distribution of fish, seabirds, marine mammals and benthic habitats in coastal and marine ecosystems. His research has ranged from modeling the distribution of groundfish in support of bycatch avoidance strategies along the west coast, to identifying invasive species habitats in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, to developing long-term coral reef fish monitoring protocols in the Caribbean. A common thread in much of his work is the development of scientific products which were made to directly support coastal management decisions. Mr. Menza earned an M.S. in Zoology from the University of Toronto, and a B.S. in Biology and Environmental Sciences from McGill University.
