The new OCB Working Group “Towards a better understanding of fish contribution to carbon flux” now has 14 members and is getting started on the following goals: 1) Synthesize the existing research on fish carbon flux; 2) Recognize challenges in measuring fish carbon flux and discuss approaches to resolve them; 3) Develop research priorities to fill in the large gaps in understanding fish carbon flux; 4) Identify opportunities to obtain resources needed to move this research forward.
The Working Group includes PI Grace Saba (Rutgers) and members Nicola Beaumont (PML), Adrian Burd (Univ. Georgia), Peter Davison (Farallon Institute), John Dunne (NOAA GFDL), Santiago Hernández-León (Institute of Oceanography and Global Change), Stephanie Wilson (Bangor University), Steven Lutz (GRID-Arenda), Angela Martin (Univ.
