Come learn about the incredible migrations taken by juvenile salmon to reach the open ocean. This talk will focus on a pristine system in British Columbia where juvenile sockeye salmon pass through a gauntlet of predators early on their migration. The potential applications of research findings on Pacific salmon to species local to the Gulf of Maine will be discussed.

He is a fish ecologist who specializes in movements (including migrations), predator-prey interactions, and bioenergetics. Nathan received his BSc from the University of New England, MSc from Texas A&M University, and PhD from University of British Columbia. Dr. Furey is a former Vanier Scholar and runner-up for the 2016 Elton Prize.
