Emily Hura

Northeast Fisheries Observer

Emily graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a B.S. in Marine Science as well as a minor in Human Environment Geography. During her time at Coastal she completed an honors thesis focused on juvenile spot (Leiostomus xanthurus) age and growth in North Inlet Estuary, SC. She also studied abroad in Jamaica where she researched fish species inhabiting seagrass beds and mangrove nurseries. One of her fondest fishing memories is spearfishing for the invasive lionfish. Outside of research she has worked as an intern at Edenton National Fish Hatchery in North Carolina assisting in raising over 88,000 Striped Bass and 6,262 Lake Sturgeon. Emily has been an observer for 5 months, completing NEFOP training in June 2023. She is homeported out of Hyannis, MA and has completed 40 sea days with the program. She has recently just completed the At Sea Monitor Cross training and is about to be trained in High Volume Fisheries in December 2023.
