Marine Biology Practicum

Marine Biology Practicum presents students with expanded opportunities to use field techniques to sample and report on marine habitats and organisms. The course emphasizes the proper care and use of field sampling gear and identification of fish and invertebrates samples from exposed shore, lagoon, and estuary habitats. A trip to the coast of either the Atlantic Ocean or Gulf of Mexico is a central component of this course; a course fee is required to cover the expenses of the trip.
