Fish larvae under the microscope

Posted by | August 8, 2011

Here are a few portraits shared by Jeremy Miller from the 2008 surveys. Watch for a report from the Ocean Survey Vessel Bold, where Hannah Wilhelm is currently assisting with larval fish (and nutrient) sampling during a one-week mission in the Gulf of Maine.
