In order to minimize the impact of the derbies on the elasmobranchs of Elkhorn Slough and to assist in various research projects, a tag-and-release program was initiated in 1988 through a cooperative effort between MLML, the PVRGC, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and the Elkhorn Slough Foundation.
Starting in 1988 and continuing until the end of the derbies, elasmobranchs were also sampled at roving weigh-in stations on boats staffed primarily by MLML graduate students.
This bandwidth upgrade will enable MLML to serve large (terabyte) data files to the public and other researchers, stream video of MLML seminar presentations by world-renowned marine scientists to other campuses or schools, and serve video of research activities to campuses and the public.
It's important to the California State University that faculty, students and staff at MLML have the connectivity necessary to support their advanced research and teaching activities," said Dr.
