Yea, we got to sleep in a little this morning as low tide was at 6:45 a.m. After breakfast we drove to the site and began our specimen collection for the day. While we were on the beach we noticed that a young harbor seal swimming nearby. It bobbed in and out of the water observing us very curiously. Since Dr. Bass sends his samples back to his lab at Cornell he asked us to collect as many type 1 males possible. Luckily, today we found a large quantity of fish specimens. After we returned to the Marine Station, Dr. Bass gave a lecture on the midshipmen and his research. He has been studying the vocalization of these fish for over 20 years. Tonight we were out helping Dr. Sisneros really late since he had over 20 fish participate in the experiment. We started around 10:00 p.m. and we didn't return to our room until after midnight.
