So for the samples there was a little bit more washing, because a lot of it looked like something.. well something dragged up from the bottom of the ocean. Full of little bits of seaweed, slime, the occasional rock and lots of mud.
So there was the common as muck, Eualis gaimardii
And we met the open ocean! That’s right, the ocean that is open. And things were a little rougher than they have been to now, which definitely showed on a few people, and made looking down a microscope nigh impossible. Onwards to tomorrow, where we will analyse the innards of fish and count shrimp.
