Andy Turko


Andy is broadly interested in why and how some fishes can survive in extreme environments, while others are sensitive to even minimal habitat disturbance. After studying some incredibly resilient killifishes for his PhD work, Andy is now studying the behavioural and physiological responses to environmental disturbance in a sensitive and endangered fish, the redside dace. This work is part of a large collaborative effort with Trevor Pitcher (University of Windsor) and Graham Scott (McMaster University) to improve conservation outcomes for endangered Canadian fishes.
