The Rehage lab in the Institute of Water and Environment examines the fish community’s response to a long-term marine protected area in Florida Bay.

They have employed a new state of the art virtual survey technique called baited remote underwater video (BRUV) that records fish activity. This is a low impact non-invasive sampling technique that can be used to determine the presence and relative abundance of the fish assemblages in the area, while also providing information on the foraging behavior.

The lab is seeking assistance processing the video data. The intern would watch a subset of the videos and record species identifications and any other noteworthy behaviors and observations. They would also submit a report that summarizes the results of the processed videos and present it to their research group.
