Annika Putt


PhD Student

I am a PhD student at UNBC working with Drs Eduardo Martins and Mark Shrimpton. I am most interested in understanding how fish and fish habitat react to environmental changes resulting from industry and development. I strive for my work to be collaborative and applied, and seek to produce meaningful tools and knowledge that agencies and communities can use to address pressing environmental issues. At UNBC, I am researching Eulachon population dynamics and conservation in collaboration with the Haisla Nation, Ecofish Research, LNG Canada, and academic teams from UNBC, UVic, and SFU. This work is part of the Conservation and Recovery Research on Oolichan in Haisla Territory (CAROOHT) project, supported by LNG Canada and the Government of Canada through a MITACS Accelerate Grant.
