"Abu Dhabi: A study of Arabian Gulf fish populations by a university student in Abu Dhabi could soon lend insightful clues to marine conservationists around the world.
The project, which looks into how fish species adapt to hot and saline Arabian Gulf waters, as well as how they mix with one another, is one of a handful of studies that delve into how fish populations get along in the region. It is being conducted by Remi Ketchum, a final-year student at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD).
“Marine species play such a key role in supporting coastal populations. And to people familiar with underwater environments, they offer a real glimpse into biodiversity. We need to understand better how they can be conserved, and this is why I want to see how fish in the waters of the region survive,” Ketchum told Gulf News."
