Biology faculty member's research featured in NatGeo's 'Sea Strikers'

WKU biology faculty member Steve Huskey’s research on the feeding behaviors of high-velocity fish will be featured in Sea Strikers on National Geographic Channel.

Sea Strikers, part of National Geographic TV’s Naked Science series, will premiere at 9 p.m. (Central time) Aug. 26, 2011. (In the United Kingdom, Dr. Huskey’s research will be included in an episode of Hunters of the Deep on Aug. 21.)

Dr. Huskey, an associate professor in WKU’s Department of Biology, is a functional morphologist and studies the feeding mechanisms and feeding habits of fish.

Sea Strikers, filmed last summer near Boynton Beach, Fla., Jupiter, Fla., and the Florida Keys, takes advantage of high-speed video technology that Dr. Huskey utilizes in his research and provides never-before-seen footage of the feeding habits of the ocean’s top predators — goliath grouper, barracuda, mackerel, mahi mahi, wahoo, tuna, billfish and sharks.

Previews of the NatGeo episode are available online at:
