“As a recent graduate this was my first opportunity to explore many aspects of marine science through field work, marine scientific research and shellfish husbandry. Some of the most memorable times included research such as collecting razor clams off Dobin’s Island, being a part of spawning events, measuring and counting razor clam eggs, European oyster research, maintaining the tanks and watching the invertebrates grow. ”
