Ecology team presents some data at Western Society of Naturalist meeting (Nov. 24, 2014)
Last weekend the Ecological Monitoring team headed to the Western Society of Naturalists meeting in Tacoma WA. This annual meeting brings together marine ecologists and fish scientists from the entire west coast. Jessica Watson, PISCO Science Integration Fellow working with ODFW, presented some of our video lander data we use to survey fish communities. Dr. Brittany Huntington presented a poster outlining the trifecta study at Redfish Rocks and Cascade Head Marine Reserves. The trifecta study compares 3 different fish survey methods: Hook and Line, Video Lander, and SCUBA at the same time to determine which method collects the most reliable data. Both presentations were well received, click here to download Brittany’s poster (1.31 MB).
