Hi Bivalve Aficionados,
We hope you’ve all had a productive summer, and are getting back into the swing of things on campus. As the famous adage goes, “time and tide wait for no one,” so we are super excited to take advantage of the momentum we’ve got going in setting up the UW Shellfish Farm in just a few weeks!
We’ve got cages built, and thousands of baby oysters ready to be planted onto the beach at Big Beef Creek, so all we need is YOUR HELP.
Scholarships to make a difference: Udall & Truman

Abby von Hagel is a student from Seattle in the Interdisciplinary Honors Program pursuing a Major in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology and a Minor in Marine Biology with plans to graduate in 2019. We talked with Abby to find out what inspires her to study marine biology and to learn how an introductory course led to her researching at the UW’s marine field station at Friday Harbor Labs.Read more
The UW has an office dedicated to merit scholarships and fellowships, and they offer weekly workshops to help you prepare to apply. See the schedule for upcoming workshops to prepare for environmentally-oriented scholarships.Read more
[speaker]: The impact of density-dependent changes in individual life histories on marine population dynamics
In this presentation I review how current fisheries models account for ecological processes. Subsequently, I will introduce a class of size-structured population models based on individual energetics that explicitly account for ecological interactions of individual fish. Analysis of models of this kind will be shown to not only increase our understanding of the mechanisms shaping fish community dynamics, but also make counterintuitive predictions about the outcome of fisheries management strategiesRead more
