View 1: Professor Marta Gomez-Chiarri and graduate student Kate Markey demonstrate filter feeding rates of Eastern oysters with algae. Experimental tanks are set up with different densities of oysters, each with the same concentration of algae. Fellows learn how to measure the consumption rate of the oysters by calculating the filtration rates and observing water clarity in each tank, then measure the change in algae concentration using a microscope.
