Our research takes us to so many places to answer fundamental questions about marine species and best ways to manage them in the future. We use acoustic tags to track movements and BRUVs to evaluate species composition. It's great work and we rely so much on our local collaborators to make it happen. We are so grateful.

In honor of the 4th of July here is the "firework" fish. This is the clearfin lionfish (Pterois radiata)and it has two distinct white lines on it caudal peduncle. It is truly fascinating to see how nature produces incredible adaptations like this.
