February 2019 Tide Bite

Dear FHL Friends and Family,
This month we have a Tide Bite that describes truly interdisciplinary research between two of our wonderful graduate students working at Friday Harbor Laboratories.  Read what can happen when you have two students who are studying very different topics that decide to collaborate on a project together.

Happy Holidays to all of our FHL Family and Friends!
2018 has been a year of highs and lows at Friday Harbor Laboratories.  We’ve seen some wonderful emerging research, such as the marine studies made possible with the OceanGate submersible and the SeaDoc Society, and we look forward to the possibilities of future years.

December 2018 Tide Bite

Dear FHL Friends and Family,
Happy Holidays!  It seems that just a few moments ago it was September, and now it is December 1st and the holiday season.  We will soon bid farewell to the students who have been living and studying here at FHL during Autumn Quarter, and the quiet of the winter season will descend.

October 2018 Tide Bites

Dear FHL Friends and Family,
Autumn has quietly fallen on FHL, bringing the new 2018-19 academic year and UW Marine Biology students to FHL.  This fall begins the UW Marine Biology major in the College of the Environment, and therefore more interactions between FHL, the School of Aquatic Fisheries and the School of Oceanography at UW.
