The Laboratory collection features both historical and current images of the James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory facilities, as well as its staff at work, Laboratory Open Houses, and images of the Laboratory's first director, Dr. Lionel A. Walford.
John Rosendale, a Behavioral Ecology Branch Biological Scientific Technician, talks with a Marine Academy of Science and Technology (MAST) volunteer in the video room. The room is outfitted with several monitors that are streaming videos of fish behavior at the Laboratory's 2010 Open House. Rosendale and the volunteer are stationed in the room to answer questions visitors have about the videos, which depict behavior research conducted in the Laboratory’s large research aquarium and show several species of fish, including bluefish, striped bass, sea robins, black sea bass, and winter flounder. The Laboratory held its 2010 Open House in conjunction with the Sandy Hook Ocean Fun Day, an annual event jointly sponsored by the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium and New Jersey Natural Gas. Over 1,200 visitors toured the Laboratory, viewed exhibits, and got their hands dirty in the touch-tanks and other hands-on activities. Volunteers, which included family of Laboratory staff, MAST students, and Laboratory interns, helped make the Open House enjoyable and informative for visitors.
