Our final seining trip was girls only on Whiskey Creek. We divided the equipment and plunged into the pluff from Minor Bishop's back yard. I enjoyed the technical and practical discussions of the day as well as pulling the seine and taking photographs.
Lisa talked about her research presentation with Denise and they identified several different species of fish collected in the seines. Denise told us her husband had asked her to help him find his duffle bag. She had to confess that she had donated the duffle bag to HML. It was the perfect size to carry the sonde in and out of the marsh. I told her my husband had the same problem with his missing stuff I take to use at school.
Later in the day we joined the other teams and worked together to process the samples and help Kolo with his samples. Guy always thanked his crew with the same thank you, "Good job!" Every researcher appreciated his excellent leadership! Denise headed home that night and I looked forward to heading home tomorrow with the rest of the researchers.
