Updates on the Blog and Network

There’s been quite a bit going on behind the scenes over at Southern Fried Science, across the Gam, and in the marine blogging world these last few weeks. A few updates for you all:

Please welcome Iris to the Gam! Iris writes about salmon at From Alevin to Adult. ¬†Our little network is celebrating it’s eighth month on the web and continues to grow.

If you’re gearing up for a field season this summer, you should consider writing for Journeys. It’s a great place for graduate students to begin developing that broader impacts statement. Instructions for how to apply can be found here.

Finding Melville’s Whale is on hiatus for at least a month while I catch up on things other than reading classic American literature and writing poetry.

You may have noticed a donation widget on the left sidebar. Once again we’re doing a fundraiser to Bonehenge, our favorite community supported, local marine science education project. This year we will match up to $250 in¬†donations, so you can double your support for science education.

Congratulations to Dr. Alastair Dove on joining the Deep Sea News team!
