Pfiesteria, found in coastal waters, is toxic, elusive, and responsible for many fish kills. Parke Rublee, professor of biology an UNC-G, is developing a gene probe to locate the organism wherever it hides in the environment.
Scientific teams, assembled by the N.C. Sea Grant College Program from four state universities, including East Carolina University and N.C. State, studied the effects of pfiesteria. Among the areas researched by the ECU scientists were the health of crabbers compared to that of nonfishers and whether crabbers set out pots.
