River Herring News

This post isn’t about sharks, but I do like to give props to those working-class fish that help feed the predators of the marine world.  Here are a couple items of interest for fans of those delicious and declining fish, the river herring. First off,…

Where the #@$8* Are the Dogfish!?

Just a brief one today. Yesterday we got out on the water again for what should have been a nice half-day excursion to wrap up this round of tagging and surgically implant acoustic receivers into live dogfish.  What it turned into was a comedy of…

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…

Tip o’ the hat to Dan at the Endolymph for making me aware of this.  The podcasts from the Southern Division AFS meeting are now available online for your listening and viewing pleasure.  Apparently due to technical difficulties you won’t be able to hear my…
