KimHowland1Kimberly Howland has spent over 20 years conducting research on arctic fish ecology and population dynamics through university and federal government agencies. She obtained a doctoral degree in Environmental Ecology from the University of Alberta in 2005 and currently works as a research scientist with the Arctic Research Division of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), Winnipeg. Her doctoral research focused on the ecology, life history and evolutionary biology of anadromous and freshwater salmonids in the Canadian Arctic and much of her subsequent research has been focused on trophic relationships, movements and population dynamics evolutionary ecology and critical habitat requirements of harvested fish species in large river and lake systems mainly in the western Arctic.  Kimberly enjoys working closely with various aboriginal groups throughout the Northwest Territories in collecting and providing information that can be used in monitoring, identifying important habitats, and co-management of their fisheries.
