Course Description: Marine Ichthyology, a heavily field-based course, challenges students to actively seek out, gather, organize, and identify fishes from the Gulf of Mexico, including daily or overnight trips in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas plus weekly offshore collection expeditions. Self-directed and team-dependent field and lab activities occur after 5:00 PM and on weekends. Students become proficient in field collection techniques and learn to process, identify, classify, and accession fish specimens. The course provides relevant training for state/federal fisheries biologists, marine educators, and students focused on fish biology, marine conservation biology, and evolutionary biology.

Course Fees and Expenses: Due to the extensive field operations and travel that scaffold this course, a travel/logistics fee applies and will be determined based on enrollment (approximately $800.00). A trip deposit (1/2) will be due on March 10, 2017, with the remaining portion due on May 1, 2017. The fee is nonrefundable unless the class is canceled.
