Prepping for new seahorses!

Tomorrow we are getting a donation of 12 adult dwarf seahorses (Hippocampus zosterae) from Alyssa’s Seahorse Savvy which will be used as broodstock to produce offspring for our seahorse feeding selectivity study. The study will provide a feeding protocol to improve seahorse culture and function as a model for understanding how changing zooplankton populations will impact higher trophic levels. We have a 30 gallon recirculating system set up and ready for our special delivery in the Aquatic Research Laboratory! The system was donated by Dr. Adeljean Ho, Assistant Professor of Integrated Environmental Science at B-CU.
