Advisor: Andrew Carlson
Andrew started his M.S. program in Spring 2022. His research focuses on the ecology and conservation of Smalltooth Sawfish in Charlotte Harbor, Florida. Andrew is using acoustic telemetry to assess the duration and timing of sawfish habitat use in the harbor, with emphasis on nursery, refuge, and foraging areas and other high-priority locations. In addition, he is characterizing ontogenetic habitat shifts at size classes that have historically been difficult to monitor (i.e., intermediate-sized fish and the very largest individuals).
