Bryson is an Environmental Policy student who started at Memorial University in the fall of 2016. Originally from Oakville, Ontario, he did his undergraduate degree at St. Francis Xavier in Aquatic Resources and Public Policy. Previously, Bryson worked on governance of community-based ecological monitoring programs. The inspiration for the project stemmed from his work as the community aquatic monitoring program for Nova Scotia over the past few years.
Under the supervision of Michael van Zyll de Jong, Bryson will be researching an integrated approach to management and decision making. This will be done by hosting a workshop for stakeholders in the Indian Bay area. The goal of the research will be to build a sustainable management model for recreational fisheries.
