Steven MurawskiDr. Murawski “retired” to USF after leaving NOAA in 2011 where he was Chief Scientist at the National Marine Fisheries Service. Upon arriving at USF’s College of Marine Science, Dr. Murawski became heavily involved with research surrounding the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill but continued with fisheries-related research via the development of the Camera-Based Assessment Survey System, or C-BASS, and most recently C-SCAMP.

When he’s not working on fish and habitat assessment on the West Florida Shelf with this project, Dr. Murawski is involved in many other projects and councils including C-IMAGE, ICES, the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council and the National Academy of Sciences.
