Patricio Bernal, who holds a Marine Biologist degree from the University of Chile and a Ph.D. in Oceanography from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego (La Jolla, USA) is currently coordinating the IUCN’s High Seas Initiatives and the Global Ocean Biodiversity Initiative.

Dr Bernal has extended experience as academic researcher (1980-90), policy maker and resource manager (1990-97) and head of a UN program, the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (1998-2009).

While in Chile (1980-1998), Dr. Bernal was Professor of Marine Ecology, Head of the Department of Oceanography and Director of Biotecmar in the Catholic University of Chile; Dean of the Faculty of Fisheries and Oceanography of the Universidad Austral de Chile and is a member of several scientific and academic associations and societies as well as being an author of more than 50 publications.
 
As a resource manager he served as Director National Fisheries Institute-IFOP (1990-94) and Undersecretary of State for Fisheries, Government of Chile (1994-96) when he implemented two and three independent stock-assessments for each exploited fish population in his country, introduced TURF’s and ITQs into management and large scale zoning for small-scale fisheries and aquaculture.

While in the UN, as Assistant Director-General of UNESCO and Executive Secretary of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, he lead the development of the Global Ocean Observing System, the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning System and coordinated the 17 UN agencies with Ocean programs.

Past research topics includes large scale physical – biological interactions in pelagic ecosystems (EBC, California and Chile-Perú) sorting out the influence of upwelling and advection in EBC. The study of small scale heterogeneities (layer formation/destruction) as hot spots of biological interaction in upwelling areas; daily growth and state condition of fish larvae to assess starvation in the field, bacterial, primary and secondary production and food chain structure in highly productive environments (including Antarctic), including size fractionation of primary production.

Bernal’s Ph.D. thesis that was awarded the Carl Eckart prize to the most stimulating dissertation presented at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 1980, provided biological and physical oceanographic evidence for the bi-hemispheric nature of El Niño, and highlighted the importance of advection in controlling the low-frequency response of the pelagic ecosystem: from the south (Equatorially generated-El Niño) and from the north (spin-up & down of the central gyres coupled to climate forcing). Bernal introduced time-series analysis (power spectra) into biological time series in time and space, and used isotopic Oxygen signatures in Pteropods shell carbonates to demonstrate N-S drift by advection.
