About Labside Chats: A Conversation with a Scientist, featuring Melissa Cronin, Ph.D. candidate

Tune in for a special Shark Science Week Labside Chat with Melissa Cronin, Ph.D. candidate in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department at UC Santa Cruz, on Thursday, August 13, 2020, at 11:00 AM PDT to learn more about the conservation of cartilaginous fishes.

Join the conversation! Submit your questions in advance for Melissa, then watch the conversation to hear the answers during the live chat. Help us put together questions such as:

• Why are sharks and rays considered cartilaginous fishes?
• What conservation issues do cartilaginous fishes face in the wild?
• Does by-catch affect cartilaginous fish populations?
• How are genetic tools used to inform and understand manta and devil ray by-catch?
• Where in the world is manta and devil ray by-catch the most prevalent?
• What conservation strategies are implemented to reduce manta and devil ray by-catch?
