Professor’s Research Highlighted in the News
Dr. Jennifer Hill recently received some publicity for her work studying the effects of the newly invasive tiger shrimp in Gulf coastal waters. Her work was published in the biannual issue of “Sea Briefs” issued by the Sea Grant Foundation of Mississippi and Alabama and she was interviewed by Pensacola News to advertise the need to catch tiger shrimp to understand the effects they are having on native shrimp populations. This research is critical for understanding and predicting how native species in the ecosystem will respond to this new invader.
