Subject: News from the Bimini Biological Field Station

Dear shark fanatics,

For the ninth consecutive year the Sharklab (BBFS) will be marking and genetically sampling the entire cohort of lemon sharks at Bimini, Bahamas, between May 30th and June 22nd. We are fortunate this year to have the skilled services of photographer and writer Eric Cheng, who edits and administers Wetpixel.com, a web site dedicated to digital underwater photography. Eric is part of the research team and will be documenting the progress of the research effort by posting images and a daily description of the activities of the shark team at the following URL:

Please visit the web site to find out what the Sharklab is up to!

    Dude, you’re crazy. :) Great photos!! (… more fish-eye shots, more fish-eye shots!)

    Hey, with your new hairstyle, Pineapple Boy, you probably need to stop wearing software co. t-shirts… maybe one that says “Sex Pistols” would be more appropriate.

    Oops. Lousy HTML… meant to say… you’re crazy.

    Enjoying the updates. Looks like hard work but lots of fun. When you’re back in SF you’ll have to tell me about how to volunteer…and the stories that aren’t suited for the web ;)

    Just told my roommate Dana about your trip to Bimimi. She is currently getting her Master’s in Marine biology so she can go work on sharks– and we are both GREEN WITH ENVY!!!!

    hey eric! I have to go along with the others… your new haircut and the comment provided us some laughs here in Germany. Also I wonder how many Eric Chengs there really are? Where do you and your body double buy all time from? Also it has been said here before, but: “envy…” – great shots, as always * best regards, Andi
