Leah Morgan is the Shellfish Specialist at the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary. Her responsibilities in this role largely include coordinating with partners and staff on the Mussels for Clean Water Initiative (MuCWI) and other shellfish-related projects at PDE. Morgan also works on National Estuary Program projects like the PDE Science Summit and the Technical Report for the Estuary and Basin (TREB), and largely coordinates activities with PDE’s Science and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC). Additionally, Morgan assists with other field initiatives like living shoreline projects and other monitoring efforts throughout the Estuary. In 2016, Morgan earned her Bachelor’s degree in Marine Science from the University of Delaware where she studied incidental mortality of sea scallops, and later worked for the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife on a recreational angler survey. She graduated in 2019 with her Master’s degree in coastal sciences from the University of Southern Mississippi where she studied oyster larval recruitment limitation in coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Morgan has an extensive field background and has always loved working with shellfish. A Delaware native, Morgan lives in Wilmington, but loves spending her summers on the beach in Ocean City, MD. She enjoys reading and spending time with family and friends in her free time.
