Four LHU Students Study Sharks in Atlantic Ocean with Chincoteague Bay Field Station
As part of their coursework, LHU biology students have the opportunity to spend part of their summer at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station in Virginia.
Many science faculty partner with CBFS to offer LHU students unique opportunities for field work. Students are able to spend a portion of the summer studying topics from biology to geology while gaining hands-on field experience.
Under the guidance of Biology Professor Steve Seiler, the students sampled for sharks, skates, and rays in the Atlantic Ocean.
According to Seiler, “The students pictured here took part in my Ichthyology course. Most of the fishes we captured were measured and released.”
