Volunteer profile: André St-Hilaire

March 4, 2014

Meet André St-Hilaire, member of the Quebec Advisory Committee.

St-Hilaire is a professor of environmental hydrology at INRS-ETE, a graduate school of the University of Quebec network.

“My research focuses on various aspects of fish physical habitat, including water temperature and sediments,” he said.

“I was asked to join the Québec committee last year and was happy to do so. I was very curious to know more about the efforts underway to protect and improve salmon habitat and productivity on our rivers.”

“Salmon populations are under numerous pressures, including habitat degradation and climate change. It behooves us to use every opportunity that we have to diminish this pressure.”
