On Thursday I went out with our plant physiologist and fisheries biologist to tour restored marshes in the Tomoka Marsh Aquatic Preserve with DEP aquatic preserve manager.
We are organizing pre-sampling of water quality, zooplankton and fish for September in Gamble Rogers Marsh which will have drag-line ditch impoundments restored soon. We’ll continue with post monitoring once the restoration is complete.
My marine bio class will head out to the preserve to measure abiotic conditions in Gamble Rogers in a couple of weeks.
Now I need to find a student to lead the project!
