Scientific Diving at Friday Harbor Labs

During the first half of 2015, we were trained as scientific divers under the supervision of Dive Safety Officer Pema Kitaeff at Friday Harbor Labs, part of the University of Washington.  The labs are on San Juan Island, near the coast of Washington, USA.  In June, we used SCUBA diving to collect sea spiders from hydroids, we brought them back to the labs, and we studied aspects of their biology.
