Sabrina Beyer Wins Student Award

Sabrina Beyer, a master’s student in Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures, claimed the award for Best Student Paper at the 24th annual Alabama Fisheries Association meeting in late February in Orange Beach. The paper recapped her findings in a study to investigate the validity of current techniques used to determine the age of red snapper and to test a new age-determination method. Steve Szedlmayer, Beyer’s major professor at theMarine Fish Laboratory Gulf Coast Research and Extension Center, says that Beyer took a risk with this project, because she had to recapture marked red snapper that had been at liberty for at least one year. No recaptures would have meant no thesis. The professor praises Beyer’s undaunting spirit and the extremely significant results her study produced.
