Today I am leaving Palmer Station aboard the Laurence M. Gould for a three day fishing cruise with Dr. Bruce Sidell and his group. We'll be about 8 hours away from Palmer using trawl nets and pots to catch a species of fish which does not use hemoglobin to carry oxygen. This is a unique evolutionary adaptation that Bruce and his group are experimenting with. More on this when I return. I've been really busy here, and haven't had much time to write over the past couple of weeks, but all is well.

Check out this link to an Esquire interview with our station doctor, Shawn. He's so mis-quoted here. Hilarious:
