Dr. Krejci volunteered to assist with Florida Fish and Wildlife’s (FWC) and Univeristy of Central Florida’s sampling of fish communities in marsh restoration sites located near Gamble Rogers State Park in Flagler County.
The marsh was dredged in the 1960s for mosquito control and portions are now being restored to their original hydrology. Teams of researchers are tracking changes in water quality, vegetation, and biodiversity before and after the restoration. Dr. Krejci’s lab is involved with sampling the areas for zooplankton and had previously conducted a small fecal coliform study.
