NEW: The Marine Invasions Lab is seeking research volunteers this summer to help with their Nearshore Survey, a long-term field study examining native shrimp and their predators. Volunteers will spend two to four days a month helping research staff sample fish, shrimp and crabs in the Rhode River. You'll get trained to identify different fish species in Chesapeake Bay, and learn to operate seine and dip nets.
Because collecting data in the field takes practice, this volunteer opportunity requires an application. The deadline is March 15, 2014.
