Arctic adventure an amazing experience for research writer

A trip to Canada’s far north with an expedition to catch and tag fish, and set out acoustic receivers to track their movements, has been one of the most amazing experiences of his life, says Stephen  Fields.

A communications officer in the University of Windsor’s department of Public Affairs and Communications, Fields joined researcher Nigel Hussey aboard the MV Nuliajuk, a 64-foot vessel plying the waters off the coast of Baffin Island.

GLIER researcher contributes to designating world heritage sites in Indian Ocean

Every year between May and July, billions of sardines “run” up the coast of southeast Africa, creating a massive feeding frenzy for the predators that devour them and a natural ecological spectacle that draws thousands of tourists to witness the event.

It’s a migratory phenomenon that could soon earn the distinction of being nominated as a UNESCO Marine World Heritage Site, and if that happens, it may be in part thanks to the contributions of a post-doctoral fellow at the university’s Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research.
