Science Online Oceans: Storify Recap of #ScioFisheries

Here it is folks, the epic Storify of the session co-lead by Ann and I at Science Online Oceans.  It was a blast, and hopefully sometime soon I’ll get a chance to put up highlights of everyone else’s sessions as well.

A Practical Guide to Making Sharks Puke

A funny thing happened since the last time I posted: a paper of mine got published.  As of last week, this paper on evaluating a nonlethal way of collecting shark stomach contents has been available via Google Scholar.  Authored by myself, my advisor, and a…

AES 2013: Days 1 & 2

Here it is, the first official recap post of this year’s AES.  I lack both a smartphone and the Twitter vigor of Dave, so I generally throw all the things that piqued my interest into one big post at the end of the day.  It’ll…

Dogfish Puke on the Beach

You may have noticed that it’s been two and half months since something went up here.  I can assure you, I’ve been a busy little grad student in that time.  One of the reasons is that I’ve been working on a couple of field/lab projects…

Winter of the Shark: It Pays to Know People

This past weekend marked a new venture into shark-related field work.  For the better part of two months I’ve been fighting the good fight to keep ECU’s acoustic array up off of Cape Hatteras, and last Friday and Saturday finally managed to actually play with…

Adventures in Acoustic Telemetry

One of the reasons posting has been so sparse lately is that I’ve been busy putting gear together, scheduling, breathlessly paying attention to the weather, and finally getting out on the water to work on the acoustic array off of Cape Hatteras.  This array has…

So That’s Where the Sharks Have Been… UPDATED

Yes, it’s been a while and yes, I do have more Summer of the Shark updates (and yes, this “summer project” has gotten pretty far into autumn).  To get back into the swing of things, here’s a quick post on an interesting sighting I made…

Summer of the Shark: Best Red Drum Survey Ever

In fisheries and marine science you have days that, by any objective standard, should be an amazing day in the field.  You get a ton of samples, the gear (mostly) works as planned, you find out some interesting stuff, and overall have a lot of…

AES 2012: Day 4 Highlights

The last day of AES talks wrapped up today.  It’s always a little melancholy to see this conference end, but one must get back to real life sometime.  Here are the highlights from Day 4.

AES 2012: Day 2 Highlights

What a busy day.  I’ve only got a little bit of time to get this up before I have to head over to the poster session, and I saw a lot of very good talks today.  Keep following #AES2012 on Twitter to keep up with…
