The University of Washington research vessel named the Thomas G Thompson has been a spotted as a regular these days off off Blake Island.


I'm guessing that they are testing the local waters beyond the out-going currents of Rich Passage where several Atlantic Salmon farming pens are located.  Their website isn't revealing what they've been up to recently but a potential break out of Salmon Anemia in Puget Sound must have their attention.  Monday was so beautiful out that I ventured over in the Beach Drive Blog zodiac to check out the operations.  Enjoy!
