    Re: start reserving seat?

    Back in 1943, I was born as one of a set of twins. My dad said to my mom, "Honey, pick out the one you like best cuz I'm going to drown that other one".

    So, that's how I learned to swim.... getting out of that burlap bag full of kittens!

    Beyond the glamorous stuff like running rapids in a drifter or sled, designing and operating fish weirs, catching fish via nets/electro shocking/hook and line, and handling hundereds of fish in a day, most of being a biologist isn't nearly as exciting. LOL.

    These days we do lots of work with DNA sequence data that has to be manipulated by computer. So, you would do well to take classes or get familiar with scripting code on a unix or mac. Windows OS is for good for the fortune 500 businesses and the masses, not for science. Not a slam on people who use Windows, just the way it is going in my field.

    Anyway, feel free to contact me anytime about jobs as a fish biologist or getting some internships. There are lots of possibilities these days for interested students! Same goes for other students or parents of kids that are interested.

    Take care,

    Thanks for the info about the coding on unix or mac. Yeah, reading the fishbio blogs really makes it seem like most of the jobs are field work, but I've always known that it's really only a fraction of what you do most of the time. Useful info, and thanks again! I'll hit you up for more info as time goes on about this.

    I remember how I learned how to swim. My big sister pushed me in the deep
    End of the pool. I learned.
