Event description

Description

Presented by Dr. Angela Collins, Florida Sea Grant

Groupers comprise one of the most economically important reef fisheries in the southeastern United States. Management restrictions like closed seasons and minimum size limits require many fish that are caught to be released, but what happens after you let them go? Acoustic tracking allows scientists to follow fish after release and get a glimpse into what they do when we’re not watching! Join us to hear about grouper tagging and tracking research in the Gulf of Mexico.

A brief bio: Dr. Angela Collins is a Florida native who was born on Anna Maria Island. She has spent over 20 years immersed in marine fisheries research within the Gulf of Mexico. As a Florida Sea Grant Agent with the University of Florida, she specializes in cooperative research and education of stakeholder groups throughout the Tampa Bay region.
