"Most natural science classes at LSSU offer students as much hands-on experience (lab hours) as lecture hours, which ensures that the university experience prepares us for the real world careers, whether you work at a desk or out in the field, or both. There are endless advantages and opportunities available to LSSU students due to its location on an international border.

I found my career path on campus when my advisor posted a job for the Bi-national Public Advisory Council (BPAC), a group dedicated to and overseeing the clean-up the St. Mary's River. I was able to gain experience and network on both sides of the border, ultimately finding full-time employment before I graduated with my biology degree."

Aaron analyzed Atlantic salmon diet in the St. Mary's River. Some food-stock species in the St. Mary's River are known to affect fish reproduction. Of the wide range of species found in salmon stomachs he sampled, the most prevalent prey item, rainbow smelt, is associated with a vitamin B deficiency. This deficiency leads to early mortality in young Atlantic salmon.
