Welcome to the 2023 North Florida Marine Science Symposium!
Join researchers, resource management agencies, and students for 2 days of cutting-edge marine science – right next to the sea!
This year the symposium will be on the Atlantic coast at the UF Whitney Lab for Marine Bioscience, just south of St. Augustine, FL. The symposium will kick off with oral research presentations on Thursday afternoon, a gallery-style poster session and social on Thursday evening, a keynote address on Friday morning (see details below), continue with oral presentations throughout the day on Friday, and finish with a BBQ social and student award ceremony on Friday evening.
The poster session and keynote address are free and open to the public!
Registration for undergraduate Marine Science majors is free!
Dr. Janet Nye of UNC Chapel Hill will present the keynote address
The symposium will be held at the Whitney Lab for Marine Bioscience in Marineland, FL

Call for Abstracts
Abstract deadline is Friday February 10th, 2023
Abstracts should be submitted by email to NFMSS@ifas.ufl.edu
Final abstracts for oral and poster presentations are due February 10th 2023 and should be submitted by email as a MS Word document attachment to NFMSS@ifas.ufl.edu following the format template below.
It is possible that we will have more request for oral presentations than we have space this year. If you request an oral presentation but we run out of spots, we will ask you to present a poster. Spaces will be filled in order of submission. Oral presentation will be 12 minutes with 3 minutes for questions. Posters should be 48” width x 36” height. Questions regarding abstracts preparation and submission can also be sent to NFMSS@ifas.ufl.edu .
We hope to see you at the Whitney Lab!

So a human (Homo sapiens) ate your lobster (Panulirus argus).
Documented interaction between humans and lobster are common. We present an analysis of high speed video for a carapace crushing interaction between a human and lobster at a restaurant in the Florida Keys. Relative attack and avoidance trajectories suggest that lobsters adopt a ‘play dead’ strategy to avoid predation. This strategy proved suboptimal and likely results in high predation rates.,

“Moving beyond single species assessments: responses of marine ecosystems and food webs to warming”
|Dr. Janet Nye is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Marine Sciences. Her research focuses on the effects of climate variability and climate change on fish, fisheries, and marine ecosystems. Specifically, she studies how climate and fishing interact to cause shifts in spatial distribution and abundance of fish and invertebrates in the Northwest Atlantic, including local fisheries in Long Island Sound and Great South Bay. Dr. Nye’s research is used to inform how climate change may affect species that have been petitioned under the Endangered Species Act.|
