Ichthyology is an upper level course dealing entirely with the ecology, evolution, and identification of fishes, focusing mainly on marine fishes. I was the teaching assistant for this class in the fall of 2007, working with Dr. Ken Able. I was responsible for setting up laboratory sessions where students learned to identify preserved specimens. I was also in charge of transporting students to the Rutgers Marine Field Station for four field trips, where we sampled and identified many fish species.
