Met Steven and Katherine at Pt. Whitney

Toured facility and got pictures of OA experimental setup (see below) Brainstormed some ideas for potential Geoduck broodstock experiments to start next month:
-seawater flowthough system needs to be set up
-have 6 boxes: 2 pH conditions x 3 replicates; 3 pH conditions x 2 replicates
-Things to think about:
-Ecological vs. aquacultural implications: Geoduck normally live in sand, boxes won’t have sand.
-Biology to explore:
1. Gonad development
2. Gametogenesis
3. Respirometry
4. lethal subsampling vs. hemolymph sampling (see Emma’s paper)
5. Metabolomics
-West Coast Metabolomics Core?
-UW mass spec core?
6. Epigenetics
