Dr. Ronald Eisler, a Laboratory scientist, discusses a striped bass specimen with members of the press attending the Laboratory’s dedication ceremony. Dr. Eisler was one of the first biologists hired by Dr. Walford to work at the Sandy Hook Marine Laboratory. His early research on the effects of water pollution, with particular emphasis upon soap and detergents, on gamefish generated significant discussion and insight about improving local water quality. Over two hundred guests, including members of the media, were invited to celebrate the launch of the first federal scientific laboratory devoted solely to marine gamefish research.
