“Grouper Groupie”: Studying Climate Change and the Nassau Grouper

Inspiration Dissemination

Janelle Layton is a second-year master’s student continuing on for a PhD in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences. Janelle studies grouper fish, traveling to a large spawning site in the Cayman Islands to collect larvae of the Nassau grouper. In the lab, she investigates the relationship between heat-shock proteins and larvae survival for clues as to the adaptability of this species to warming waters. We speak about her journey to OSU and her experiences as a Black woman in marine science. Hosted by Grace Deitzler and Joseph Valencia.
