SAFS grad student James Dimond is featured on UPI Science News:
‘Marine biologist Ruth Gates sat down in an oversize wooden rocking chair at an oceanside resort here last week to talk about the next frontier in coral science and a new hope for saving coral reefs reeling from climate change: genetic technology.
“There are hundreds of species of coral, all with complex biologies and physiological traits that vary based on their DNA and environment,” Gates, director of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, said while seated on a sprawling lanai overlooking acres of coral reefs awash in turquoise waters.
SAFS graduate student Eleni Petrou is featured in UW Today:
‘In 2015, a harmful algal bloom damaged ecosystems, communities and economies across the U.S. West Coast. Fisheries essential to local economies faced long-term closures to protect human health. Marine life suffered mass die-offs. Climate change makes recurrent events likely, but there is little assurance that public policy will better support our communities and environment the next time.
It is my great pleasure to introduce the 2017 QSC Drag Show! This year, we have an exciting new location in the HUB North Ballroom and on May 26th from 7:30-9:30, YOU could be performing!

Each year, the Husky 100 recognizes 100 UW undergraduate and graduate students from Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma in all areas of study who are making the most of their time at the UW.
In 2017, three SAFS students were honored with the Husky 100 award:
Jonathan (Jono) Grindall, undergraduate senior
Griffin Hoins, undergraduate senior
Daniel Hernandez, graduate (PhD)
Congratulations to Jonathan, Griffin, and Daniel!
SAFS undergraduate student Ariel Delos Santos is featured on the UW website:
‘Senior Ariel Delos Santos was one of the students in Born’s fall class which looked at connectivity and community place-making in Auburn.
“Working with the LCY program brought a novel component to our educational experience. Instead of a standard classroom setting where our homework is only seen by the professor, our final products were intimately tied to the city and its community members – which greatly motivated us to do more work and be more attentive to those who will be affected,” said Delos Santos, a senior double major in Community, Environment & Planning and Aquatic Fishery & Sciences.
W.F. Thompson Award for Best Student Paper
Published in 2015
Nominations are open for the W.F. Thompson Award, which will be given by the American Institute of Fishery Research Biologists (AIFRB) to recognize the best student paper in fisheries science published during 2015.
The award will consist of a check for up to $1000 as determined by the Board of Control, a certificate and a one-year membership in AIFRB at an appropriate level.
Surprise and discovery in Hakodate
by John Trochta, SAFS graduate student
Heat and humidity were not new to me, especially coming from a Seattle summer, but it still surprised me in Hakodate. I suppose the actual surprise didn’t occur until we arrived at the Japanese inn, where I eagerly expected the relief of air conditioning and didn’t find it. My room on the fourth floor was small and almost entirely empty, except for a short end table and a bundled Japanese futon (completely different from the American furniture piece of the same name).

This past summer I received a full scholarship to participate in an incredible two-week course abroad with two other awesome SAFS students.
Snorkels and Seaweeds and Squid, Oh My! Travels of a SAFS Student in Hakodate, Japan
by Grace Workman, SAFS undergraduate student
This summer, I got to experience life in Hakodate, Japan! Hokkaido, the northern part of Japan, is home to the city with delicious dairy, the freshest seafood imaginable, and our host, Hokkaido University. Our trip was only 2 weeks, but filled with adventures that I’ll remember forever.
