The queen of marine creativity stikes again! Diane Haas, an Ichthyology Lab student (who you may know as creator of some sweet, toothy shark cupcakes) crafted this vision in frosting for labmate Tom Wadwsorth’s thesis defense last week.  The lucky subject?  A China rockfish (Sebastes nebulosus).  What a delicious complement to Tom’s thesis, “Trends in Abundance Surveys of Nearshore Rocky Reef Fishes in Central California 1959-2007.”  Congrats, Tom, and two thumbs up to Diane!  (Oh, would this cake qualifiy as sustainable seafood?)
