I lead a group of very talented and experienced fishery field biologists who have compiled many years of sea time with the goal of striving to conduct the highest quality field measurements. My graduate research was focused more towards the processes with the benthic invertebrate environment, specifically the mechanisms of recolonization. My transition over to ship based research in 1984 was a far cry from the manageable and accessible benthic world of bays and estuaries but many biotic principles applied and still do. During my six years at Hubbs/Sea World Research, I was a member of the original staff to begin the OREHP project which was funded by the California Department of Fish and Game. The goal was to determine if existing populations of wild white seabass (Actractoscion nobilis) could be numerically enhanced by the introduction of farm reared fished released into the wild. That project still continues today. Going into my 25th year with the SWFSC the demands for accurate and efficient use of ship time has increased more than ever. We are entering a new era of ships and technology and I see the work we do here at the SWFSC moving forward right alongside these technological advancements.
