overview

  • Dr. Jennifer Rehage is a coastal and fish ecologist and associate professor at the Institute of Environment and the Earth & Environment department. Studies in her research groupfocus on understanding how natural and human disturbances affects multiple aspects of the life of fish focusing on individuals, their behavior, populations, ecosystem role, and interactions with anglers.

    Over the past decade at FIU, Dr Rehage has been studying how hydroclimatic variation effects fish and the recreational fisheries they support in the Everglades and throughout South Florida. Research has focused on Common Snook, Florida Largemouth Bass, Bonefish, juvenile Atlantic Tarpon and Jack Crevalle. Studies examine the interacting effects of natural flow regimes, climate, and management decisions on fish space use, distribution and populations, and involves recreational anglers, and local ecological (angler) knowledge.
