Undergraduate Spotlight

Ms. Haley Gambill has received both the NC State College of Natural Resources Enrichment Fund and the G. T. Barthalmus Undergraduate Research Grant. Congratulations Haley!

Ms. Gambill is conducting her own independent research project this semester investigating how fish aggregation size affects growth of individual white grunts. Collaborating with Dr. Jesse Fischer , we will be using otoliths (fish ear bones) for age and growth anaylsis. More updates on this research coming soon!
