Orcas: Student Marine Field Research Opportunity ...

Student Marine Field Research Opportunity-

please share this information with anyone you think would be interested

Spend 10 weeks studying fish and endangered killer whales in the wild!

In a pilot project with Biosonics — a fisheries research equipment manufacturer in Seattle (http://www.biosonicsinc.com) — Beam Reach students will be using a 200kHz hydroacoustic instrument to track salmon (the food of choice for the killer whales).

Today (Thursday May 1) is the first day students will tag fish and begin using this research tool.  It is our hope that our students will gain valuable insight into how salmon behavior affects where the whales go, when they go, and why.

Beam Reach is for you if you want to:

use hydroacoustic equipment to study fish

work with experts in killer whale conservation

sail on a biodiesel electric catamaran

test drive life as a field scientist

explore the San Juan Islands in the Pacific Northwest

earn 18 credits from the University of Washington

Check it out:


You don’t have to be a science major to apply; you just have to be interested in the marine environment and want to spend 10 weeks studying off campus.

We are now accepting applications for our Fall 2008 program:

Fall 08 August 24- November 02

Currently we have our Spring program in session. So if you'd like to see what it would be like, check out the student blogs:
