Last Thursday, our four senior fellows presented their work on their fall projects. Seniors Deni Budman, Elise Turrietta, and Alice Yang are working together to host a Benefit Regatta at the Norfolk Yacht and Country Club that will raise money for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as well as awareness of critical Bay issues in our community. To learn more about their Regatta you can read through their Project Presentation.
Following their presentation, Mark Kelly began sharing his research on blue crabs. Mark’s research involved an analysis of fluctuating population numbers and the impact of regulations against fishing spawning females on the total population.
