Ode to Zooplankton

Macy Littell , Starboard/B Watch, Wellesley College

Zooplankton

Cramer is sleepy today as she rocks back and forth at anchor. We arrived in St. Thomas yesterday after a short sail from Francis Bay, St. John. We still have a little bit of the bay with us, sitting in jars and bottles ready to be processed and analyzed. Two of those bottles are mine, filled with green-brown murky water, a strikingly different color than the rich teal sea they were collected from. Inside my vials, hundreds of plankton swim and float, causing the muddy color.

We board the SSV Corwith Cramer tomorrow! It’s been a long road to get here already (literally and figuratively), and we haven’t yet set eyes on the ship. We’ll run you through some of the details.
