Title: Omineca Fisheries 2020: Regional Fisheries Management in a Changing Environment

This presentation will begin with a brief review of my own academic path that has led me to the Omineca Region and Prince George. This part of the talk will focus on research conducted in the Canadian Arctic, where I studied contaminant transfer in arctic lake and estuarine food webs in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. I will then provide an overview of FLNRORDs current Omineca Fisheries program, present past and current Fisheries Management activities and priorities. The overview will broadly outline our efforts on managing focal species and fisheries in the region, as well as highlight ongoing research efforts in collaboration with UNBC graduate students. To end my presentation, I will discuss findings of two case studies of two priority species in greater detail: 1. an ongoing study on Bull Trout stream temperature modeling in the Bowron Watershed and 2. an example of unexpected challenges related to White Sturgeon recovery efforts in the Nechako Watershed; Personal website with links to publications and reports for the keeners:<>
