Summer Seining

July 10, 2015

Summer Student Fellow Sara Hamilton (left) and Julie Pringle, a laboratory assistant in the Biology Department, use a seine net during a recent fieldtrip to Wood Neck Beach in Falmouth, Mass. The trip kicked off the start of the summer fellowship program and served as an introduction to local intertidal biodiversity for the fellows. Hamilton and Pringle are working together in Joel Llopiz’s lab on a project examining the feeding dynamics of forage fish, such as herring, mackerel, and butterfish, which represent a critical but poorly understood link between plankton and top predators in the waters off the Northeast Coast.(Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
