The study arose out of student projects in Prof. Finnerty’s Marine Invertebrates course (BI547). Sara is currently a PhD student at the University of New Hampshire focusing on marine parasitology and aquaculture. Caitlyn is a PhD student at Clemson University studying ecology and evolutionary biology.
