Change is in the air here at OIMB. Most of the students have finished their classes and are now packing up for their moves back to Eugene or whichever part of the country they came from. A handful that are taking an intro stats class remain, but campus has quieted down significantly. Despite not being […]

Another week of my summer Sea Grant experience has passed; I’ve reached the point where the conclusion of my internship with ODFW is in sight. I have mixed feelings of melancholy and excitement regarding this. On one hand, this has been an extraordinary experience that I’ll miss. Living on the Oregon coast, especially in a […]

This time we went to Valino Island, which represents a more heterogeneous habitat than our previous survey at Indian Point.

However, I anticipate this project to be more focused and self-directed than the others. That is, I expect to assume more responsibility […]

Last week was pretty mellow and represented what one might call “more of the same,” but not in a bad way. In my last blog post I wrote that I was excited to begin my cockle project in earnest this past week. Well, turns out I got my dates mixed up, because that’s actually happening […]

Last week once again saw me participating in a variety of activities for ODFW. On Monday and Tuesday, we finished the summer sampling session for bay crabs in Charleston marina. We measures, weighed, and tagged 325 (±) Red Rock crabs (Cancer productus) and 350 (±) Dungeness crabs (Cancer magister) in a week’s time (no tagging […]

Here are some photos of the crab tagging and shrimp measurements I’ve been taking. I mentioned in my last post that the tags are called “flow tags.” That is incorrect. They are actually called “floy tags.” The photos give an idea for how they’re attached.
