Notice, Spring 2018

robotsRobots mimicking larval swimming behaviors of several marine organisms are being deployed in the ocean near the Bodega Marine Laboratory to determine effects on larval dispersal. If you find one in the water please leave it there. If you find one washed up on the shore please pull it above the water line so that it doesn't get washed away and call the contact number on the device. Thank you!
