The Fuentes lab is looking for DIS or volunteer students to participate in an interdisciplinary study looking at the motivations, frequency, and knowledge of recreational scallopers in the Big Bend of Florida. We are studying what brings scallopers to the region, how often they come, and their knowledge of marine turtle populations in areas where they fish. The work will be predominantly focused around in-person surveys and interviews of recreational users at public boat ramps in Crystal River, FL.
