Hilary on boatI joined the Rooney lab in the Fall of 2018, and I am co-supervised by Mark Servos. I completed my BSc. in Environmental Biology at Queen’s University in the Spring of 2017. Currently, I research Lake Erie’s commercial and recreational walleye fishery, which is the largest of the Great Lakes. Using stable isotope analyses of nitrogen and carbon, I am testing for changes the trophic ecology of young-of-the-year walleye between different habitat zones in the southern Grand River. I am also using acoustic telemetry methods to identify the movement patterns and spawning habitat of mature spring spawning walleye.
