Innovation Lab Students Aboard the Vessel “Peconic”

Innovation Lab @Ross students spent three hours aboard the research vessel "Peconic," exploring the waters of Shinnecock Bay. On October 12, they departed from the Southampton Marine Station operated by Stony Brook University's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) and trawled at several locations to sample the sea life. They not only found local species of fish, crabs, and shellfish, but they also spied tropical species that were just passing through the area. Students discussed the local ecosystem with Stony Brook biologists and learned what opportunities were available for volunteer work and research internships at SoMAS.
