Welcome to this year's blog detailing our field season at McMurdo Station, Antarctica! We are a team of biologists from Portland State University who study the fishes of the extremely cold waters of the Southern Ocean.

Our studies are focused on the impact of increasing water temperatures on the physiology of these extremely sensitive and ecologically important species.
