Meaghan Faletti

Meaghan received her Bachelor’s degree from Florida State University in 2013, where she primarily studied the effects of invasive lionfish and Red Grouper on community structure in Florida Bay. She comes to USF from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), where she spent two years coordinating the state’s Lionfish Outreach Program. She spends most of her free time diving, spearfishing, and volunteering with FWC. Meaghan’s future goals include conducting research on recreationally and commercially important marine species to assist in fisheries management. With a strong passion for outreach, she hopes to facilitate communication between the fishing and diving communities with fishery managers to determine knowledge gaps and how to fill them. Ultimately, she’d like to explore how fish population dynamics may affect broad-scale marine ecology and promote the development of ecosystem-based management approaches. For her Master’s work, she will be investigating movement of the recreationally important Hogfish, Lachnolaimus maximus, in the Gulf of Mexico using stable isotope analysis.
