Dr. Geoffroy’s project aims to understand how the operation of the Muskrat Falls dam will affect fish ecology in the Lake Melville estuary. By answering this question, his research will help to: understand the impacts of this large-scale hydroelectric project on coastal communities in the region and better predict the effects of future dam developments on fish in northern Canada. It will also provide baseline information for science-based management of fisheries in Lake Melville.
