My research on the bioaccumulation patterns of Hg in bluegill and largemouth bass was one component of a larger research program investigating Hg in fishes from the Fish/Fisheries Conservation lab at University of South Carolina Aiken under the direction of Dr. Virginia Shervette. Research in the FishCon Lab examines ecosystem, community, and species responses to anthropogenic impacts in aquatic systems along the watershed gradient including freshwater, estuarine, and marine environments. Most of the work in that lab relates to water quality and how human alterations of water quality in various aquatic ecosystem impacts fish health.
