February 11 - Clark Morgan, MS | Secrets of Local Fish Migration in Northeast Florida
Join us for our February Webinar! Clark will share the Whitney Lab's project of tracking and monitoring red drum fish movement and migration patterns in Northeast Florida. He will provide details of how acoustic telemetry is used to understand local fish habitat usage, and how this work is helping identify and protect critical spawning and nursery areas to impact conservation.
Clark received a B.S. in Biology from Florida State University in 2014 where he began researching elasmobranch ecology under Dr. Dean Grubbs at the FSU Coastal & Marine Laboratory. He then completed his M.S. from the University of North Florida in 2018 working with Dr. Jim Gelsleichter, where he studied coastal shark ontogenetic habitat shifts and trophic dynamics via stable isotope analysis on the First Coast. He has researched various aspects of shark and bony fish ecology and reproductive biology in Australia, The Bahamas, the Gulf of Mexico, and throughout the Atlantic Ocean in the United States. Clark joined Dr. James Liao's Lab at Whitney in 2019 and is currently leading the red drum acoustic telemetry project which investigates migration and habitat utilization patterns of adult red drum in St. Augustine waters, while also studying aspects of on fish metabolism via laboratory experiments.
