My name is Laura Brady and I am from Ottawa, Ontario. I just graduated from StFX this past spring with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. This will be my second summer conducting research with the Wyeth lab on the lobster foraging project. The goal of the project is to test bait preferences of the American lobster in the hopes of gaining more knowledge on one of the most important fisheries in Canada. On this project, I will continue my role in data management as well as assisting the field crew with data collection. I will also be working to collect data for another project on the acoustic behaviour of American lobsters. The findings from these projects may also allow us to provide advice for lobster harvesters to make the fishery more sustainable. I am happy to be working with a great team once again and excited to spend the summer learning and challenging myself.
