Fourth-year Marine Biology student Sandra Domenech is studying the impact of red tide on shark populations in Sarasota Bay. With the support of Associate Professor of Biology and Director of Pritzker Marine Biology Research Center Jayne Gardiner, and the help of student volunteers Kera Pasquerilla, Ireland Abbott and Cecilia Hampton, she catches, measures, and tags sea life at various points in the bay. In addition to research for Sandra’s undergraduate thesis, the data collected is part of the NOAA Gulf Shark Pupping and Nursery survey.
