We are very proud to share that Dr. Christy Pattengill-Semmens, REEF Director of Science, and Dr. Brice Semmens, Director of California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations and associate professor at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, have been named Scuba Diving magazine’s April 2019 Sea Heroes! Sponsored by the watch brand Seiko, this award honors the extraordinary work done by scuba divers making a difference for our world’s oceans, reefs and marine life. As the lead scientists for REEF’s Grouper Moon Project, Christy and Brice play an integral role in this highly successful effort that has brought together government, science, and fisheries to study and protect critically endangered Nassau Grouper in the Cayman Islands.
