The Murawski lab received great news earlier this month about several of our ongoing projects. The C-IMAGE consortium has been awarded a new three year, $20.2 million grant to continue research related to the BP oil spill disaster. This will help support ongoing work on fish health related to the spill. Read about it here.
NFWF also just announced $100 million in support for projects all around the Gulf Coast. $34.3 million from the Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund will go to projects in Florida, including the C-BASS project project at USF for continued characterization and assessment of the benthic ecosystems and fisheries of the West Florida Shelf.
