New paper from graduate student Rachel Aitchison documents first record of banded guitarfish in central California

Congratulations to SJSU/MLML grad student Rachel Aitchison on the publication of her first paper!

Rachel’s paper describes the first record of the banded guitarfish (shown to the right) in central California. This observation represents a major northward range expansion for this species which is typically found in waters off southern California and Mexico. Co-authors on this study include Rachel's MLML advisor Dr. David Ebert and graduate student Gammon Koval.
