Eimear Egan is a freshwater fish scientist with the Freshwater Ecology team at the National Institute of Water and Atmosphere (NIWA). Eimear grew up on a small farm in the west of Ireland. A tributary of the Inagh River which one of Irelands elver (juvenile eel) recruitment monitoring sites, runs through her family farm. This sparked her interest in freshwater fish. Eimear went on to complete her BSc in Environmental Science at University College Cork, Ireland. Eimear completed her PhD in 2017 on the marine life of īnanga whitebait at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch.
