Jenny is working on the genetics and stock structure of Gemfish, Rexea solandri. During her visit in November 2013, Jenny subsampled alcohol-fixed Gemfish tissues and had discussions with Drs Don Colgan and John Paxton, the Australian Museum authors of a 1997 paper on Gemfish genetics and stocks (download the paper).

Jenny will be sending tissues to Dr Andrea Armani in Italy to help in her gemfish genetics work.
