Devon Smith

 

Undergraduate​ Honours Student

I am a BSc Wildlife and Fisheries student here at UNBC. Fisheries has always been a passion of mine while growing up in the Lower Mainland of BC. That passion has guided me through my post-secondary academic life towards my goal of becoming a fisheries scientist. As part of my undergraduate degree, and work with the Freshwater Fish Ecology Laboratory, I am writing an honours thesis under the supervision of Dr. Eduardo Martins as part of his larger spatial ecology of Arctic grayling (Thymallus arcticus) project. My thesis will look at using machine learning modeling to estimate the detection efficiency of acoustic telemetry equipment based on riverine characteristics. My goal is to apply the knowledge I obtain here at UNBC in future employment opportunities working in the fisheries sciences field.
