During our Human Impacts on Coastal Ecosystems Lab program students will investigate human effects on our local marine ecosystems. The lab includes a closer look at ocean imbalance with an emphasis of eutrophication in the ocean. Students will examine fouling plates to distinguish native, non-native and invasive species in the Dana Point harbor. Students will participant in a fish necropsy where they will study a specific organ. Students will use scientific tools including water quality probes, iPads, quadrats and microscopes to determine the magnitude of ecological disturbance on our coastline due to humans.
