- This event has passed.
Dr. Dean Grubbs is a fish ecologist with >30 years of experience studying the biology and ecology of sharks and rays in coastal, pelagic, and deep-sea environs. Dean’s interest in sharks stems from being raised in Florida’s Gulf coast. After 15 years away doing research based in south Florida, The Bahamas, Virginia and Hawaii, Dean returned “home” in 2007 and has been research faculty at Florida State University’s Coastal and Marine Laboratory since, where he maintains an active and highly collaborative lab and mentors graduate and undergraduate students. In this lecture, Dean will pull examples from his research and recent books to display the diversity and splendor of shark life, the roles sharks play in marine ecosystems, the challenges and successes of shark fisheries management and conservation, and illustrated with some “highlights” and “lowlights” from his own research career.
