Sarah Popov – Research Assistant

Sarah-Popov-bio_pic1Sarah finished her degree in Sustainability at McGill University in 2015, with a focus on fish movement and migration patterns for her senior thesis. She joined the Sea Around Us at the start of 2016 as a Research Assistant working on catch reconstructions.

Much of her early childhood was spent catching minnows, tadpoles, salamanders, and frogs in the creek flowing through her suburban New Jersey hometown. She hopes to eventually move on into a career in conservation and research where she can continue catching fish and frogs but refer to it as “work.”
