Last week 3.7 million red drum (Redfish) larvae were released in the Matanzas River as part of Whitney Lab's fish conservation efforts. Adult, breeding red drum were collected as part of the Dr. Jimmy Liao Lab's ongoing fish migration and conservation project, supported by Yamaha Rightwaters and other private foundations over the past four years. Fish were then spawned and carefully raised by Dr. Leonardo Ibarra-Castro's Fish Aquaculture program at the lab.
