Second Nature

With the rest of the patch team on kayak and down island rotations, Aidan and I were the only two in research class last week. Although it was only been the two of us, we were able to get a lot of surveying done. As we spend our field time snorkeling and surveying, both Aidan and I have realized improvement in our skills. Fish ID and free diving among the patch reefs have become second nature to us. We have learned certain skills and traits of different fish species such as having to look under the reef and watching for the flighty Nassau grouper. Each time we enter the water we feel more confident in our fish identification skills, which show in the number of fish we are continuously able to identify at each site. We now look forward to analyzing the data we have collected this semester.
