SAVANNAH, GA - A single-cell organism continues to cause multiple problems for shrimping, an industry that's called the Georgia and Carolina coasts home for decades.

In their fourth year of research, the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography took its Research Vessel Savannah out and gave WTOC a firsthand look at their continuing effort to understand a still relatively unknown foe: black gill. 

The group spent Tuesday cruising the intercoastal waterways and gathering samples of shrim as a part of an effort to learn more about black gill. 

The Annual Black Gill Stakeholder Cruise left early and brought together many different minds, perspectives, and experiences. From a lifelong shrimper to scientists from the Skidaway Institute of the Department of Natural Resources, the trip was about collaboration.
