Oxford Science Café: Below the Surface!

Invitation: Science is fun at the Oxford Science Café! Join us for an exciting presentation by Dr. Richard Buchholz and Kayleigh Mazariegos (UM).

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM Nov. 14, 2023
Heartbreak Coffee in the Square
Open to the public

Dr. Richard Buchholz and PhD student Kayleigh Mazariegos from the UM Department of Biology will present their novel research in a talk titled "Below the Surface: Fish Sounds and Community Science in the Gulf of Mexico."

Did you know that fish make sounds? Fish use sound for breeding, feeding, and alerting each other to danger. Bioacoustics, the study of animal sounds, is a new approach that we're using to understand fish ecology in the Gulf of Mexico. Even though it contributes 40% of the nation’s seafood, the Gulf’s naturally cloudy water has made it difficult to monitor and manage fisheries there. In this presentation we first explain how fish sounds can be recorded and identified. Next, we will show how our community science project in the GulfSeeLife app ( will recruit recreational fishers to help us to test how fish sounds can be used for long-term monitoring of the Gulf’s ecosystem health and productivity.

When: Tuesday, November 14, 2023, 6:00pm - 7:00pm.

Where: Heartbreak Coffee, 265 North Lamar Boulevard Suite G, Oxford, Mississippi 38655
