The Semeniuk lab at Devonshire Research Showcase

The Semeniuk lab was out in force at the Devonshire Research Showcase with our live-tracking cameras and goldfish completing behavioural trials with mirrors and legos. Our display was enjoyed by everyone, and Predator-on-a-String (POAS) is always an interactive crowdpleaser.

We’ll be at Science Rendezvous this Saturday May 7th if you missed this event!

Lab seining days

Sept 28, 2015

Last Monday and Tuesday, Lida needed a few more hands on deck to collect the invasion front gobies in her last two rivers. Luckily, the lab, and even the Love lab, stepped up. Natalie, Mitch, Meagan, Oliver, Tina, Lida and Kevyn managed to collect the last of Lida’s samples, right as the water was cooling off for fall. Everyone had a great time. Good job Lida!

Lida goes goby hunting again

Lida & Kev seining Sarnia

Lida arrived back from the field with Kevyn and Pauline, goby samples in hand. We ended up finding Lida’s last invasion front in the back-up of the back-up river. Highlight of the trip: pulling up a 31 gram goby at the invasion front!
