I am a M.S. student at the Nature Coast Biological Station (NCBS) in Cedar Key, FL. I am also currently working with Florida Fish and Wildlife’s Fisheries Independent Monitoring Program while pursuing my degree. My research focuses on the effects of oyster restoration on nekton assemblages in the Suwannee Sound, located outside the mouth of the Suwannee River. I am collecting fish and invertebrate richness and abundance data along Lone Cabbage Reef to compare differences before and after the oyster restoration.
