Ashley Trudeau

Ashley Trudeau is a PhD student in Ecology and Evolution at Rutgers University. As part of her dissertation, she is investigating the social-ecological dynamics of the recreational lake fishery in the Northern Highland Lake District of Wisconsin. She plans to apply a landscape modeling approach to understand how angling effort changes with fluctuating fish populations and across a range of ecological conditions. As part of this research, she will develop a discrete choice experiment investigating how different groups of anglers choose among fishing sites that differ in expected fishing quality, species availability, and travel time. Understanding angler decisions will allow fisheries managers to better predict fishing effort and subsequent fish mortality across a lake-rich landscape.

Ashley completed her bachelor’s degree in Biology at the University of North Carolina in Chapel hill and her master’s in Fish Biology, Fisheries Science, and Aquaculture at Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany. Her research is part of an interdisciplinary project called FishScapes: https://www.caryinstitute.org/science/research/research-projects/fishscapes-social-ecological-interactions-fishery-landscapes.
