Current MBC student Mariela Rios Alcubilla was recently featured by Scripps Institution of Oceanography “Student Spotlights” and we are thrilled to re-share the article!

Mariela Rios is a graduate student in the Master of Advanced Studies program in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (MAS MBC) at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. A marine biodiversity and conservation major, she works under the helping hands of Samantha Murray and conducts research alongside Octavio Aburto to analyze the commercial sardine fishery’s profitability in Mexico. She also volunteers in the labs of Jennifer Smith and Stuart Sandin working on the 100 Island Challenge. Having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration with a concentration in finance at Endicott College in Massachusetts, she hopes to one day return to her hometown of Veracruz, Mexico, to restructure the commercial fishing industry.
