April Ecosystem Services Photo Contest Winner

Congratulations Duane Fagergren!

Duane Fagergren: Wash water from one longline bag of seed shows a sample of fish and invertebrates that use oysters inside bags as prolific habitat. In this one partial sample are shore crabs, amphipods, copepods, crangon shrimp, and snake prickleback (fish). Foraging fish such as Coastal Cutthroat trout, sculpins, flatfish and sea perch congregate around the bags as well.
