Spring Quarter Snapshot: Staying on to Care for Fish

In a remote section of campus west of Highway 113, Matthew Stone and a few students are looking after the well-being of thousands of fish at the UC Davis Center for Aquatic Biology and Aquaculture, where Stone is the assistant facilities manager.

“We have quite a large number of fish that we’re trying to take care of and they all have different needs that we need to address,” he said. “These are things we simply cannot skip over during a time like this.”

The numerous fish tanks located at the five-acre facility need to be cleaned every day and, of course, the fish need to be fed every day as well. About 15 species — including sturgeon, salmon, trout, and smelt — are under study at any one time.
