Thanks for your interest in REEF Fish & Friends! We are pleased to welcome our July 2023 speaker, Tom Matthews, Lobster Research Scientist at Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission.

It's almost lobster season in the Florida Keys, and there's no better time to learn more about one of South Florida's most popular crustaceans! Tom will discuss the complex life history of the Caribbean Spiny Lobster, their communication style, and their importance to local ecosystems.
