Hayden works to understand the mechanisms causing the severe decline of North Atlantic cod populations.

"In particular, I'm interested in the mismatch in scale between fishing activity and fisheries management programs, and the ecological scale of the cod population. Understanding this issue may provide clues to successfully restoring this highly prized and ecologically significant species," Hayden said.

After earning her master's degree in forestry and environmental studies, Hayden served as director of marine programs for the Maine Audubon Society and then as a policy develop specialist for the Maine State Planning Office. In 1994, she founded Resource Services, an independent consulting company that specializes in analyzing natural resource and environmental issues.
