E-sea is an attempt to translate and simplify the world of Marine Science. My goals are to introduce the basics of Marine Science, explain why we should care, and update the public about ongoing research and current issues.
I am a Biology and Marine Sciences grad with a passion for North Carolina’s coastal ecology and learning about cool new research. I have worked in labs studying microbial life in the deep ocean, oysters in NC’s Pamlico Sound, and smallmouth bass movements in central Pennsylvania (with some genetics and histology on the side). I believe it is important for people to be able to research and understand the basics of what is going on with our lakes, oceans, and streams and the animals that depend on them. I hope that E-sea will make it easy for you all to learn about some neat research and form your own opinions about the major ocean issues facing our world. Enjoy!
