The Fisheries & Conservation Biology Lab at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories (MLML):
1. conducts scientific research to enhance our understanding of nearshore species and promote the wise use, conservation, and management of valuable fishery resources;
2. provides technical advice, training, and leadership to help governmental agencies, environmental organizations, and resource users develop and coordinate resource management plans; and
3. works with academic scientists, non-governmental organizations, and members of the fishing community to evaluate marine protected areas (MPAs) in California.
While MLML graduate students provide direction and supervision, marketing and communications interns are allowed creative freedom in many of the projects and activities they are assigned. This provides valuable 'real world’ experience while instilling a sense of responsibility and ownership over work products. The more enthusiastic, creative, and driven an intern is, the more rewarding and useful this internship will be for professional development.
