Kyle Jameson Krumsick

Postdoctoral Fellow

Junior Associate of the Loyola Sustainability Research Centre

Dr. Kyle Jameson Krumsick is the recipient of a postdoctoral fellowship awarded by Mitacs working in collaboration with the Nunavut Fisheries Association. He received both his Master and PhD from Memorial University of Newfoundland addressing questions relating to trophic niche and food webs for marine communities. His award-winning peer-reviewed articles have appeared in journals such as the Marine Ecology Progress Series and ICES Journal of Marine Science. His current project, conducted under the supervision of Dr. Eric Pedersen in the Department of Biology, analyzes marine community size spectra along the Nunavut shelf to assess the influence of the expanding Greenland halibut fishery on overall community health to ensure a future of sustainable harvesting. Historically, the managing of fisheries has focused on a single-species approaches, typically regarding species of particular economic importance. The future of sustainable harvesting of fisheries involves shifting towards an ecosystem-based approach by assessing community-wide impacts of anthropogenic activities.
