New methods: Testing our options

This last week we tried some different solutions for dissolving crab tissue and shells so that we might “float” our plastics out to save time when looking for plastics. We are tweaking the methods used in the Claessens et al 2013 paper.  We are having to tweak because they fried all of the fibers from the samples.  I will have more updates later in the week.IMG_9180
