About the event

Ami Staples is the Marine Fisheries Biologist II for the Multi-Species Tagging Program at the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries (NCDMF). Ami oversees daily operations of the Tagging Program from administration and research to public engagement and outreach. Her favorite part of the job is tracking fish movements and working directly with the fishing community. Ami is always eager to speak to an angler about their tagged fish recapture, lead presentations about the Tagging Program to fishing clubs, train volunteers on how to tag fish and collect scientific data, or conduct hands-on science activities for school groups.

Originally from Georgia, Ami received her B.S. in Fisheries and Wildlife Management and M.S. in Forest Resources from the University of Georgia. Ami has a passion for science communication and is a published author and illustrator. When not at work, Ami spends most of her time outdoors and her favorite spot is fishing on the dock with her husband and two daughters.
