Are you a:
student looking for science research project
that wants to become involved in a research lab or field project
enthusiast that wants to learn about breeding marine fishes
I'm involved in a long term study of gobies from
the Americas, specifically the American Seven-spined gobiid
fauna. These fishes are distributed along the Atlantic coast
from Massachusetts to Argentina and along the Pacific coast
from Baja California to Chile. The study is investigating the
evolution, ecology, distribution, and biogeography of this group.
There are many spin-off projects available dealing with the
developmental biology, breeding behavior, DNA, morphology, distribution
and ecology of the species.
We need help:
techniques for breeding the species in aquaria.
species in the field.
distribution and habitats of the species.
the larval development.
fish in their natural habitats
Live on Long Island?
You can get involved in the breeding and lab portion
of the research being conducted at Hofstra University's Aquaculture
Looking for a different
