Kyle Krumsick – MSc student at Memorial University of Newfoundland (Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada)

OIMB provided me with many fantastic opportunities that have helped me in my current work. The field and lab experiences offered both through courses and through helping OIMB graduate students with research provided me with skills that I have now expanded on and use frequently. Probably the greatest contribution to my current field of study was from the Biology of Fish professor, Daryl Parkyn, whose love for fish and fisheries is contagious. After graduating I enrolled in a Masters program where I study the decline of cod stocks around Newfoundland and Labrador. I use a combination of stomach analysis and stable isotopes to analyze variability in feeding and how that relates to the condition of individual cod as well as populations.
