Hi there,
I'd be grateful if you could pass this seminar announcement on to
potentially interested students, faculty, and staff at AVC.

Assessing Effects of Tidal Power on Fish: Applying Experience from
Maine to the Bay of Fundy

Dr. Haley Viehman, Acadia University

Friday, March 17, 2:30-3:30 pm
SSDE Room 128B

What are the effects of tidal turbines on fish, and how can researchers
measure them? Dr. Haley Viehman, postdoctoral researcher at the Acadia
Tidal Energy Institute, will discuss the current state of the art in
answering questions such as these. Haley completed her PhD at the
University of Maine, monitoring fish presence and behaviour at the site
of the first tidal turbine deployed in the USA. By combining a variety
of hydroacoustic technologies and sampling techniques, Haley and other
members of her lab have begun to understand how fish may interact with
tidal energy devices. Now at Acadia University, Haley is applying her
experience to the new 2 MW tidal turbine deployed in the Minas Passage
of the Bay of Fundy.
