Larry Redd, Jr.
Larry Redd, Jr., is finishing his M.S. at Hampton University, where he is studying the gastric evacuation of juvenile pompano, a project with implications for sustainable aquaculture. Larry was recently awarded an Outstanding Student Presentation Award for his Oral Presentation at the 2015 Aquatic Sciences Meeting in Grenada, Spain.
Larry earned his B.S. in Biology from Norfolk State University in 2006. “It means quite a lot to be selected for the Knauss Fellowship”, said Redd, Jr. “The Marine Science field lacks diversity. Hopefully, I can be an example to other students that if you put in the work and trust yourself that you can make an impact".
Larry has been placed with NOAA Fisheries in the Highly Migratory Species Division.
