Panama City Lab's Fishery Biologists are involved in various projects concerning both fish and shark research in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean, and Southeast Atlantic Ocean. 

The women of the Panama City Lab coordinate the shark bottom longline and gillnet observer programs, assess shark and smalltooth sawfish populations, manage marine protected areas, conduct fishery independent surveys, manage commercial reef fish stocks, compile life history profiles, perform scientific diving, and educate students on becoming better stewards of our marine resources.
