The activity experiments continue onboard

Kim and Malin working on the tail end of the activity experiments, after the animals come out of their “hotel rooms.”

Cool! Here Malin is taking photos of the copepods that were used in the experiment, to later measure their lipid content. The outline of the lipid sacs can be seen on the computer monitor. The copepods used in this experiment are lipid-rich, meaning they can store energy inside their bodies and become a good food source for animals like fish and seabirds.
