His research examines the global economic and ecological importance of forage fish species (e.g. anchovies, sardines, herrings and others) to marine ecosystems. He has worked on a number of domestic and international research projects examining the effects of anthropogenic pollution on our coastal marine resources. Rountos was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to conduct independent research on the effects of fish farming in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea in 2007. During the fellowship, Rountos developed new public environmental education initiatives in local communities throughout Greece.
