Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute scientists are well represented in the latest journal Environmental Biology of Fishes. Of the 23 scientific articles published in the "Special Issue on Fishes on the Flats," Harbor Branch researchers and graduate students co-authored 15. Aaron Adams, Ph.D., senior scientist at FAU's Harbor Branch and director of science and conservation at Bonefish & Tarpon Trust served as guest editor.
Many of the Harbor Branch research articles feature work conducted as part of the Bonefish Reproduction Research Project. The goal of the project is to understand the life cycle and spawning process of bonefish in order to inform conservation, management, and restoration.
The research was funded through a partnership with Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, a science-based non-profit, conservation organization, and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
