2015 IFAS RESEARCH SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM > For Juniors and Seniors interested in gaining valuable experience in research.
MARINE ORNAMENTALS > Florida supplies about 95 percent of the nation’s marine ornamental fish but only a small fraction are captive-bred; UF/IFAS experts are developing breeding protocols to protect wild populations.
OYSTERS > When oyster populations collapsed in Florida’s Apalachicola Bay in 2012, UF/IFAS experts launched a volunteer effort to determine the cause and develop solutions.
BALA SHARK > Native to Southeast Asia, the Bala shark is a popular aquarium fish that was pushed to the brink of extinction. Now, it is now bred in captivity with techniques developed at UF/IFAS.
