Carly Walters

 

Undergraduate​ Honours Student

I am a fourth-year undergraduate student completing a Bachelor of Science degree in Fish and Wildlife at UNBC. My main interests are in fisheries research and conservation of fish species in British Columbia. I am completing an undergraduate thesis on the population of rainbow trout in the Stellako River. Using snorkel float data from the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, I am building a population dynamics model that incorporates stream temperature, and sockeye salmon returns and fecundity. The main goal of the thesis is to help managers understand the population trends in the Stellako River, to allow them to implement management techniques to conserve the fishery.
