The goal of this study is to describe the reproductive behaviors of Giant Sea Bass, S. gigas, at Santa Catalina Island, California.
DSG-Ocean Acoustic Datalogger- is a long-term hydrophone (underwater microphone) essential for getting the most accurate results, allowing me to analyze mating strategies and describe spawning behavior of giant sea bass in detail.
I also need to feed my field assistant! I know they would just to eat peanut butter and Oreos all summer with me (that's my field food), but maybe a pizza would be nice from time to time.
Extra funds will be used to purchase supplemental equipment to ensure the validity of the data.
