Opportunities for Artificial Reefs in St. Croix

Nadia Racz & Natalie Rotondo, Saint Michael’s College & The University of Rhode Island

Reefs

Today, we will be talking about potential artificial reefs in St. Croix, USVI.  In our Ocean Science and Public Policy course during the onshore component in Woods Hole we wrote a policy brief on the frameworks of installing artificial reefs in the US Virgin Islands.  Then when we headed to St. Croix, we talked with local researchers at the East End Marine Park about the impact of artificial reefs on St. Croix’s marine protected areas.

The beginning of the journey is the end

Pike Li, Colorado College

Cramer anchored

I spend a certain amount of time writing on Cramer but not academically. Sometimes, just simply peeking at the tempestuous ocean and greenish islands carries my thoughts afar,and thus the writing begins; sometimes, writing a few sentences to friends on different watches brings me happiness for the day.

Going out to sea… and back again

Today was our day to move bays once again, but this time we did it differently. Usually, we just motor from one bay to the next and it usually only takes the morning.

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.

Boy has it been a great Earth day! Yesterday my watch got to snorkel for all of five minutes before we had to get out of the water due to thunderstorms.
