This is my first time at the lab and I have been at the lab for almost 2 weeks. I have not done PIT before but I am looking forward to having dinner for breakfast!
I don't have a pony to ride any more, so I thought I would try a shark instead.
I came to the lab for a shark biology course last year with CCU. I've been a volunteer for 2 weeks and I'll be herer until August. I've never done PIT, but I'm really excited to be a part of it this year.
I have been here for 3 days! I haven't been to the lab or done PIT before, but it has been a blast so far and I look forward to PIT
I came to the lab in May 2011 for a course and I fell in love with the lab and Bimini! I have been here for 2 weeks and will stay for a total of 2 months. This will also be my first time doing PIT.
I got bored of cleaning gutters in London so I thought I'd try the ones in Bimini. Luckily the timing coincided with PIT. This meant I could also persue my dream of being a shark wrangler, and a walking buffet for all the mosquitos and sand flies.
This is my first time at both the lab and doing PIT. I am Dr. Frank's student and will use the data collected to look at rowth rates for my undergrad project at Rollins College.
This is my first summer at the lab and am loving it already! Excited to get dressed up as a disney princess for PIT! Going to be Pocahontas!
Here on a shark adventure. Thrilled at the opportunity to experience life at the Bimini Shark Lab. This is my first summer away from Jersey Shore, they have let me off on sabatical as Snookie is busy giving birth.
This is my first time at the lab. I've been here for
two months so far and it is my first time doing PIT!
I've been at the lab as one of the Principal Investigators since January this year. This is my first full PIT so I'm super excited for all the baaabies!
I live here so I have to do PIT.

I have started my PhD project at the sharklab last January. I have never done a PIT before, and therefore I am really impatient to start it.
I first came to the lab in August 2010 wit hthe University of Minnesota course. In November 2011 I returned as a volunteer, and was promoted to staff in March 2012. This will be my first PIT.
I have been here for 1.5 years and this is my second PIT. This year I plan to donate approximately 1/3 of my blood to the Bimini mosquito/sandfly foundation.

I like turtles.
This will be my 3rd PIT, but first one as a staff member. I will rely on the wisdoms taught to me by Kristine Stump to manage the tagging boat this year.

Five years doing a PhD .$50,000
Medical bills related to field work (long story) .$5,000
Doing something I am passionate about (namely catching sharks!) .priceless
I have been a staff member for 6 months and have been around the lab for about a year and a half. I took part in PIT 2011 and look forward to another exciting project.

This will be my 7th consecutive PIT and I am actually just trying to beat Matt Potenski's record. Been working at the Sharklab since May 2007 and all I want for Christmas is for us to catch a sawfish this time around.
