Dear all,

I would like to inform you of a recent publication that our Program helped support.

X. Serrano, M. Grosell* and J. E. Serafy. 2010. Salinity selection and
preference of the grey snapper Lutjanus griseus: field and laboratory
observations. Journal of Fish Biology, 76: 1592-1608

You can find the abstract online at:

During the early years of our Program, the lead author, Xaymara Serrano, spent several field seasons with us collecting data for this fantastic paper.

Congrats Xaymara and thanks to everyone who helped make this happen.
