David Deslauriers

Dave's minnow trap eel



David grew up in Quebec City, Canada and attended Laval University where he specialized in marine ecology, BS degree (2003-2006); St. John's Newfoundland for an advanced diploma in sustainable aquaculture, 2007; MS degree at the University of New Brunswick in St. John (2008-2011). David is working on his PhD studying larval sturgeon ecology with Dr. Steve Chipps.
