Live from the fish bowl

Here are some pictures of our Cal Academy team measuring fish in the project room at the California Academy of Sciences in SF. The lab has been coming here since the summer, and with the help of two undergraduates are measuring morphology on close to 250 fish species. Since there were four of us today, we needed more space and worked on display so all could see us dangling fish from sutures to get photos for center of mass estimates.
