Fisheries Research Interns

Collin Glaser

Collin Glaser is a junior at Roger Williams University pursuing a double major in Marine Biology and Aquaculture/Aquarium Science. Outside of his studies, Collin is the PR chair for the RWU Fishing Club and works in the wet lab taking care of marine ornamental fish. As a fisheries research intern for the Beyond Our Shores Foundation, Collin is currently working on analyzing data from dolphinfish satellite tags deployed in the Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean in order to develop a greater understanding of vertical movement trends in that part of the world.  Collin has also helped assemble tagging kits to increase dolphinfish conservation and data collection around the region. 

Margaret Rodrique

Margaret Rodrique is a recent graduate from the University of Rhode Island with a double major in Marine Biology and Environmental Science and Management.  Margaret’s primary focus is on ecological sciences and has conducted independent research projects on mangrove systems and salt marshes. Margaret is also passionate about both scientific writing as well as communicating science to the public.  As a current fisheries research intern for the Beyond Our Shores Foundation, Margaret is writing a scientific note that couples remote sensing data with field observations from a research expedition conducted in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Caribbean Sea in 2018.  Her research focuses on highlighting an environmental event that triggered an increase in dolphinfish abundance and presence along the north coast of Puerto Rico. 

Alison Whitney

Alison Whitney is a freshmen marine biology major at Roger Williams University located in Bristol, Rhode Island. She is excited to help the Beyond Our Shores Foundation create tagging kits that will be distributed around the world to help increase data collection on dolphinfish as well as promote better angling and conservation practices for the species. 

Grant Dingley

Grant Dingley is a freshmen marine biology major at Roger Williams University located in Bristol, Rhode Island. He is excited to help the Beyond Our Shores Foundation create tagging kits that will be distributed around the world to help increase data collection on dolphinfish as well as promote better angling and conservation practices for the species. 

Elaina Giansanti

Elaina Giansanti is a freshmen marine biology major at Roger Williams University located in Bristol, Rhode Island.  In the future, she hopes to be either working at an aquarium or traveling the world helping animals in our oceans.  She is excited to help the Beyond Our Shores Foundation create tagging kits that will be distributed around the world to help increase data collection on dolphinfish as well as promote better angling and conservation practices for the species.

Abby Grove

Abby Grove is majoring in marine biology and plans to add a double major in Aquarium and Aquaculture Sciences at Roger Williams University located in Bristol, Rhode Island. She has been fishing since she was old enough to hold a fishing pole. I’m excited to get involved in research with DPR. She is excited to help the Beyond Our Shores Foundation create tagging kits that will be distributed around the world to help increase data collection on dolphinfish as well as promote better angling and conservation practices for the species.

Katy Benagh

Katy Benagh is a freshmen marine biology major at Roger Williams University located in Bristol, Rhode Island. She is excited to help the Beyond Our Shores Foundation create tagging kits that will be distributed around the world to help increase data collection on dolphinfish as well as promote better angling and conservation practices for the species.
