This was a busy summer for the Rosy Rockfish laboratory experiment!
Tim Hogan joined the team as a NOAA Hollings scholar from the University of Miami. He worked on analyzing images of one-day old larvae released in the lab to look at maternal size effects on larval quality and the possible effects of temperature and maternal condition.
I also had help from three high school student interns. Leah Varghese and Kathleen Cheng joined the team from the UCSC Science Internship Program and Ruby Rorty joined us from the Pacific Collegiate School in Santa Cruz. Leah, Kathleen and Ruby worked hard all summer on counting Rosy Rockfish larvae to estimate fecundity.
I thank Tim, Leah, Kathleen and Ruby for their hard work this summer!
