Oceanbites Out Loud has turned into a podcast. We bring the latest news in ocean science straight to you! Our goal is to summarize the most recent scientific articles for your listening pleasure, and talk to up-and-coming ocean scientists who have new and interesting ideas to bring to the table. We hope you enjoy and learn a little something along the way!
Thanks for listening!
