hey! i just joined tumblr and found you looking through the 'ocean science' tag! i'm from puerto rico and am going to plymouth uni to study ocean science! finding this blog made me as happy as a clam :)
Just wanted to drop a note saying your blog is awesome- especially your "about" section and your story. It's an inspiring story that demonstrates your determination and dedication to reach your goal! I know you have influenced many young viewers to chase their dreams and passions! Take care and I followed!
Thank you! I appreciate that - but I have to give credit to all those who influence(d) me to chase my passion and dreams.
HI! To start off I just want to say that I love your blog, but I do have some questions. I'm a senior who just decided that I want to switch my major to Marine Biology. What colleges/universities did you apply to for this? This information will really help me a bunch! P.S. There will be more questions in the future, but this was all I could think of at this point.
Hi! Thanks for the question. You can read about my journey to marine biology and then marine conservation here.
I studied in the UK, and applied for marine biology at Newcastle, Liverpool, Bangor, Plymouth, and another one I don’t remember now (it’s been a while!) and choose Plymouth University in the end.
When female angler fish release eggs, do the parasitic males (at least, whats left of them) release the sperm into the water, or directly into the females? Is the fertilization process internal or external?
