eelgrass beds.
Information to be Derived
Samples and Chemical Analysis
Photographs, quadrat assessment data
We documented the occurrence of invasive species of tunicates on
eelgrass in rapid assessment surveys and quadrat surveys. Eelgrass samples
with and without attached tunicates were collected and dried in a drying
oven at MV Commission office in Oak Bluffs. Eelgrass samples will be
processed by EPA-Boston personnel for carbohydrate, sugar, and starch
content.  191 Digital Photographs were gathered.
5 days at sea.
