"It's okay, Haru. They'll find you.." 
"They're probably looking for you right now."
"They have to be.."

At the age of ten, Haru's parents, eager treasure hunters, took him with them on an adventure, insisting he have the same future as them. Their trip led out at sea, but took a turn when a storm hit, swallowing their ship whole. Haru was the only survivor, having drifted away from his parents' drowning forms on a plank, hand outstretched, screaming. Two days passed in a daze, blue leading him to the place in which he'd spend his next years; a deserted island.

Adapting to the wilderness didn't take long and as years passed by, Haru had learned the ways of the island. He could swim, catch fish, build decent shelters, climb trees, craft weapons. Everything he needed to survive. The only exception being company. This wasn't necessarily something crucial, but the loneliness slowly ate at him, driving him to the brink of insanity. In his mind, he created characters, friends and family, young and old. They lived on the island with him, filling the extra shelters he'd built, but never filling the emptiness in his heart. But despite this, Haru kept on living, in hope that one day he'd finally be saved. In hope that one day, he wouldn't be alone anymore.

Rotavirus infects humans as well as other animals and causes severe diarrhea in infants and young children. There are very few fatalities in the United States and other places where a vaccine is available, but elsewhere, the virus is responsible for more than 450,000 deaths each year.

HELLO FOLLOWERS NEW AND OLD!

Do to one my postings going ape shit and finding out that everybody loves sunfish (molas) I have a ton of new followers so I figured it would be a good time to tell you a little bit about myself.

I am a grad student at CSU Northridge getting my MS in Biology and I am an underwater selfie king.  The school is super awesome, the weather in valley, eh, but i get to spend my summers living on an island studying cool things so its worth it.  I am interested in fisheries research, mostly behavior of aggregating target fishes and big apex things. So with that being said I studying the reproductive behaviors of GIANT SEA BASS. If you don’t know what one looks like, CLICK THIS LINK. They are a beautiful fish, that is part of a now collapsed fishery, which left them endangered. 

(isn’t she pretty?!?)

I am interested in how they do it and what it takes for them to want to do it aka foreplay or courting. With this I hope to be able to answer some questions about their recovery, such as how long will it actually take for their populations to recover; will they actually recover; how many times does a GSB spawn in a day. Hopefully within the next year I will be able to answer those questions and let you guys know all about it. 

I am also a founding member of the GIANT SEA BASS COLLECTIVE, which is a joint project between CSUN and UCSB dedicated to identifying aggregation sites for GSB to aid in their recovery.

If you have any questions about fish, fish sex, big fish, small fish, fish food or anything you can think of that is fish related I will do my best to answer it.   I will also answer questions about internships, school, grad school, being a marine researcher etc. Here are some questions I’ve answered in the past, maybe you have the same question.

There’s a little bit about me and here is the first GSB gif the internet had ever seen (i believe) made by me, in June.

Cheers!
