Megan joined Lummi Harvest Management in 2018 after completing her Master’s degree Aquatic and Fisheries Sciences from the University of Washington. As the Intertidal Shellfish Biologist, she works to ensure maximum sustainable harvest of intertidal shellfish resources such as clams and oysters for Lummi’s community. Megan has extensive experience working with shellfish that range from restoration and enhancement of native species, to ecosystem services of shellfish and education outreach. She has a passion for protecting the health of shellfish populations and the important habitat they create while maintaining shellfish harvesting opportunities for commercial opportunities and food security. While at Lummi she has surveyed the tidelands for clam population assessment, determined the impact of large winter storms of shellfish populations, and explored pathways to increase resilience to climate change.
