FAU Harbor Branch Researchers Take Part in NOAA Cruise

FAU Harbor Branch research professor John Reed, Ph.D., and biological scientist Stephanie Farrington recently departed on a two-week NOAA cruise aboard the NOAA ship, Pisces. Their quest: to characterize benthic habitat and fauna in five South Atlantic Marine Protected Areas. The research included nighttime multi-beam sonar mapping using a Remotely Controlled Vehicle (RCV) from the University of North Carolina and tracking the speckled hind, one of five species of grouper that is a "Species of Concern" for NOAA.
