Monthly Meeting: Migratory Fish and Brook Trout

September 12 @ 7:00 PM 9:30 PM

Nick Jones’s presentation will cover two separate fishery studies: “How Resource Subsidies from Migrating Fishes Increase Stream Productivity” and “Past and Present Brook Trout Habitat in the Lake Simcoe Watershed.” The phenomenon of how natural resource subsidies support stream productivity is well-known in the Pacific Northwest where salmon return from the ocean to spawn. In doing so, they import nutrients and energy that supercharge the ecosystem. Does this also happen in the Great Lakes? The presentation on Brook Trout in the Lake Simcoe watershed will evaluate factors that drive their distribution. Nick is a research scientist with the Aquatic Research and Monitoring Section of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and also an Adjunct Professor at Trent University and U of T. Nick has expertise in the ecology and management of flowing waters including monitoring, the ecology of hydropower rivers, the interaction between streams and lakes, and he has studied many species, including brook trout, sturgeon, redside dace, and lake trout.
