Sixteen volunteers did an outstanding job representing SoMAS and Stony Brook University at the SUBMERGE festival in Manhattan on Saturday September 16, 2017. Five tables of onshore exhibits informed and entertained the thousands of attendees on topics including effect of hypoxia on shellfish, fisheries science, mercury in seafood, and SoMAS educational programs. Over five hundred visitors toured the R/V Seawolf and the equipment and samples aboard.
Thanks to the volunteers for lending their time and talents: Justin Bopp, David Bowman, Kurt Bretsch, Ian Dwyer, Mike Fogg, Sam Gurr, Rebecca Kulp, Emily Markowitz, Maureen Murphy, Mark Nepf, Tara Rider, Jason Schweitzer, Matt Siskey, Nils Volkenborn, Tom Wilson and Helen Wilson. Thanks also to Steve Ortega and Mark Lang for their assistance during preparations, and to Kamazima Lwiza and Larry Swanson for their support of this important outreach effort.
