Bahamas Collecting Expedition: Ooohh I just love checklists!

Posts from the Sea TURTLE teen diving program will continue, but at the same time New England Aquarium staff and volunteers are on their regular spring expedition to the Bahamas. This is that team's second post, written by Andrea.

On our second day Barbara made a list of tasks for us to get done before the participants arrived later that day. Everyone took a task and got to work and before you knew it we were done by noon!

Later that afternoon the participants arrived once everyone was settled in we had a great dinner that Kate prepared. After a safety briefing by the captains, Barbara went over fish collecting techniques [also discussed in this post and this post].

Barbara unveiled the trip fish [explained in this post], a red lip blenny; one of Barbara’s favorite fish.

Everyone is very excited for tomorrow as we ship off to Bimini.
It is kind of breezy right now and the captains think it might be a rough crossing.
I will let you know how rough the crossing will be.
