Duke trip

I usually accompany a group of Christopher Newport University students from Dr. Mollick’s class http://www.cnu.edu/bces/profiles/mollick.asp to the Duke Marine Lab http://www.nicholas.duke.edu/marinelab/ this to assist in I.D’ing fishes and to help run the wet lab. But this year two of my staff members who formerly were students on the trip are representing the aquarium department next weekend. The trip is always fun and a great opportunity to collect invertebrates and some fishes, though this time of the year is not always productive. We always get many species of inverts and they usually end up on exhibit. A giant red hermit crab (pictured above) I collected a few years ago is the informal aquarium dept. mascot. I will ask the Jessi and Heidi to post their photos when they return
