Meagan started as the Semeniuk lab’s first Research Associate in 2013, establishing our aquatic holding tanks and testing arenas in GLIER’s aquatic facility. She developed protocol to successfully collect and transport wild perch and bring them into captivity. Her work examines the ontogeny of behaviour in young of the year Yellow perch raised in different conditions, and has collaborated with the Fisk labs to examine stable isotopes and determine feeding strategies, and the Heath lab to examine genetic differences between focal populations. Meagan’s graduate work is supported by an NSERC CGS-M award.
Meagan was the first graduate student from the Semeniuk lab. She is currently working for Environment Canada with Grant Gilcrest in the arctic, assisting with Cody’s research.
