We learned all about the behavior of these crabs and how we can relate much of the behavior learned from animals to our own human behavior. It was "crabtivating"...🦀

Currently watching two female blue crabs fight for their food! The way to know they are female is by the red tips on their claws. Who will win?? 🦀

Yesterday in marine communities lab we calculated oyster clearance rate. Oysters are vital to maintaining water quality in their ecosystems

Fun fact: Did you know oysters can filter 1.3 gallons of water per hour? These marine organisms are important for multiple ecological functions. We measured the clearance rates in these oysters to study their ability to clean out particles from water

While in Puerto Rico for Spring Break I got to see mangroves!! Mangroves help to reduce costal land erosion and serve as a nursery for many juvenile fish!

Observing behavioral patterns in blue crabs. Looking for aggression in crabs, appearing larger &/or striking their enemies, and submission, appearing smaller &/or retreating. These guys can be feisty! Did you see that strike!?

According to the captain there’s 11,000 feet of water below us. I wonder what the marine life is like down there🤔🐙🐳

Last week in lab, we dissected these nekton to determine their gut contents! I much preferred sorting and counting these bad boys that dissecting them 😅

Thanks to innovative research regarding genetic analysis, more is known about the Gray's beaked whales's population structure. Conservation and management knowledge of these cute cetaceans has now become available.
