David Coil is collecting puffer fish while we are going for urchins and crabs.

 

He successfully caught dinner.

 

Our dinner is: Mexican Hogfish and Fine-scaled Triggerfish.

 

The first porcelain crab we found is Petrolisthes agassizii. Looking forward to find her sister species on the other side of the isthmus.
We were lucky and also found P. donadio, a rather rare crab.

 

The new STRI research facility in Gamboa that will soon be filled with faculty.
