It is no easy task tagging and clipping hundreds of fish 14 hours a day, day on end. But on tides when the fish are slow the crew gets a chance to catch up on sleep, reading, data management and lots of coffee.
In the evenings, after many hours of confinement on the raft, volunteers and staff stretch out their legs on the beach. Home for the crew is conveniently located just off of the trap shore lead. Our trap shack has four bunks and a crude kitchen comprised of coolers and camp stoves. Late dinners around a bonfire are an evening occurrence and a perfect way to end a day of fishing.
