June 16th saw the much anticipated arrival of the NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette. The Sette was originally scheduled to arrive in Apra Harbor, Guam May 14th. However, it was delayed a month due to engineering issues. As a result two projects slated for CNMI and Guam were cancelled. However, two projects were able to be salvaged. Additionally, the Sette was able to recover and deploy 3 High-frequency Acoustic Recording Packages (HARPs) for the Cetacean Research Program during the transit. The two remaining projects involve PIFSC working with partnering agencies and groups in CNMI and Guam to conduct insular fish surveys in support of life history work. Stay tuned to the PIFSC blog as updates from the field come in.
