Tom Pratt started work in 2001 with DFO-GLLFAS in Sault Ste. Marie as a Community Production Scientist. Tom received his B.Sc. in Zoology from the University of Manitoba in 1994, his M.Sc. from Trent University in 1998, and his Ph.D. from Trent University in 2001. Both the M.Sc. (which investigated the importance of predators on pumpkinseed sunfish life history strategies) and Ph.D. (which investigated the biological component of recruitment variability in walleye) focused on the importance of predators in structuring aquatic ecosystems. Tom also completed a short stint as a PDF at the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research through the University of Windsor prior to his move to Sault Ste. Marie. Tom is currently involved with sea lamprey research through the Great Lakes Fishery Commission and in addressing fish / habitat linkages and habitat manipulation research in the Turkey Lakes Watershed. 

Tom is a father and husband and as such has no leisure time.
