I am investigating the abiotic and biotic factors influencing larval and juvenile development Olympia oysters (Ostrea lurida).  This is BC’s only native species of oyster and is a SARA listed species of special concern.

Delayed mortality of migrating Pacific salmon following capture and release from fisheries may be attributable to freshwater pathogens and disease development, likely exacerbated by rising river temperatures. These assumptions have not been thoroughly evaluated and have drastic consequences, which include pre-spawn mortality and population decline. My research examines the effects of water temperature and fisheries capture/release on the physiology, pathology, and disease development of Pacific salmon during freshwater migration.
