BSc (U. Guelph), MSc (U. Laval)
Claude Nozères is originally from Vancouver, but went out east to study marine mammals (grey seals at Guelph). After stints out west in mountain parks and with desert fishes, he went on to work for DFO's Institut Maurice Lamontagne (IML) as an intern then as a master's student, studying diets of seals and beluga whales of the St. Lawrence using multivariate methods to examine fatty acid profiles of blubber and prey species.
Claude is best-known at the IML as a 'pho-bio', taking pictures of marine mammal prey in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence (mostly fishes and shrimps), assisting with their identification, and doing graphics work (page layout of the AZMP Bulletin).
He currently resides along the shores of the St. Lawrence, where the ready-access to marine fauna is proving useful for contemplating a doctoral project in biodiversity.
