Updates from the Field (No Pictures Yet…)

I want to start this post off by apologizing for forgetting the upload cable for my camera.  Because of this glaring oversight, I won’t be able to post any pictures from the trip until I get back.  Here’s hoping I describe everything well enough to…

Field Work!

The posts for the next couple weeks will likely be pretty brief, because I’m up in Cape Cod helping out with a little dogfish tagging, plus working on refining my own shark puking technique.  Unlike last time, we’ll be working primarily off of fishing vessels…
