Pittsburgh Rocks

Hey all.  The ECU contingent made it back from Pittsburgh last night and I’ve finally managed to eke out some time to collect my thoughts and recap the week (and what a week it was).  This was my first national AFS meeting, and it was…

Beautiful Sunny Pittsburgh

Finally got some downtime to leave this update.  Yesterday we made the 10-hour drive (8 hours normally but we had a 7-person van that could never properly synch up bathroom breaks).  Now myself, Dan, and other members of the AFS crew are at the annual…

Dogfish on Tour: Pittsburgh, PA

Hey all.  I’ve been ridiculously busy lately and it almost slipped my mind to announce my next trip out pimping my research.  This time I’ll be presenting a poster at the AFS annual meeting in sunny Pittsburgh, PA.  For those who saw my poster at…

AES Conclusions and An Announcement

Below the jump you’ll find a talk that I somehow managed to forget to discuss here on the blog, some parting remarks about the conference, and an announcement.

AES Day 1

The first official day of talks wrapped up today, followed by a pretty sweet social at the Roger Williams Park Zoo.  I’ll run down some of the more interesting stuff I heard about today in relatively short form below.

The Ya Like Dags? Social Guide to Rhode Island

Two posts in two days?  It’s like I’m a real blogger all the sudden. The occasion for this post is that next week I’ll be participating in the Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists.  I’ll be presenting a poster on my work as well as…

Tidewater Recap – Only a Week Late

Last weekend some members of ECU’s AFS student unit (including yours truly) headed up to Annapolis, Maryland for the annual meeting of the AFS Tidewater Chapter (which includes fisheries professionals and students from Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina).  Not only was this my first…
