Paulina Salinas-Ruiz: “Strange Fish in Weird Places”
Paulina Salinas-Ruiz is a graduate student in the Applied Marine and Watershed Science Master’s program at California State University, Monterey Bay and a Graduate Research Assistant at CSUMB’s Institute for Applied Marine Ecology. She has worked as a research technician using SCUBA to study the effects of invasive algae on the marine ecosystems along the coast of California and she is currently working with the California Undersea Imagery Archive on a long-term project that uses imagery to better understand the changing distribution of fishes and invertebrates along the coastline. “Strange Fish in Weird Places” is one part of that larger project, focused on engaging the public in the collection of images to support our understanding of how climate change is impacting seafloor communities.
