Welcome to Marine Field Studies 2017

Welcome, everyone!  This is the blog that the Marine Field Studies students will be maintaining during their course this summer which begins May 10th.  I am one of the instructors for the course and we are really excited to get things rolling!  I am a professor at University of South Florida St. Petersburg (USFSP) and study interactions of cephalopods with many aspects of their environments.   My current focus is on the deep sea organisms of the Gulf of Mexico (0-1500 m deep).  

Students will begin posting their introductions within the next few weeks so stay tuned!


  1. Hello everyone, my name is Taylor Derrico and I am from Long Island, New York. I am now a junior at Florida Southern College. I’m a Marine Biology major, with minors in Environmental Science, and Psychology. I really love learning about the marine mammals in the water, as well as the different ecosystems associated with the ocean. I just recently took a course called Ecosystems of Florida. It was very interesting to learn about the different ecosystems in, and around the ocean. I enjoy learning about new things that can further my knowledge about marine biology, and environmental science. I am looking forward to this course because I want to partake in hands on research, and to develop key research skills that I would need to use to conduct my own research. I am looking forward to being a part of this class, and I’m ready to gain some more knowledge.
