Students in Mr. Davy’s oceans class at High School East enjoyed a day of marine life observations and exploration on the R/V Paumanok in Southampton. They compared the environments of the upper photic (sunlight) zone to the benthic (lower) zone and observed the differences in different types of organisms and species. They also used an otter trawl to collect the fish, including fluke, tropical fish, pipefish, blackfish, seabass, a type of cod and a seahorse.
