Habitat Cruise- 15 April 2008


Yum... copepods on tricuits anyone?

Well, after 20 years of vegetarianism, I ate an animal product today... copepods! They didn't really taste like much, just very salty.

The habitat studies team at the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies monitors the distribution of zooplankton in the bay, and they towed at several different stations to collect samples. I primarily stayed up top to assist with the collection of photo ID data. Cape Cod Bay sure seems a whole lot bigger from a vessel than it does in an aircraft!
