Justin completed his honours degree in Biology at Mount Allison University working on fish behaviour and physiology. After completing this work, as well as wild Atlantic salmon monitoring efforts with a First Nations organization, an interdisciplinary approach to research became appealing. Justin is a current Master of Marine Management candidate investigating social licensing of the aquaculture industry in Norway and in Atlantic Canada. By drawing from the Norwegian perspectives of transparency and communication, as well as their successful and continued expansion of the industry, managers in Atlantic Canada could have a better understanding of how to progress towards an aquaculture industry that achieves social license.
