Four VIRTUE arrays were deployed at the UConn Avery Point floating dock on August 19th. The schools and teachers represented include: Stoughton HS (Kathy Bulger), Melrose HS (Bill Hurley), Canton HS (Marsha Jorgensen), Suffield HS (Leah Gawlak). The arrays were retrieved on September 24th, 2016, however two arrays were dislodged, presumably by waves during tropical storm Hermine. Below are photos and species diversity data from one disk from the two remaining arrays.
