It’s been a while since my last post now. I’ve been quite busy at work trying to squeeze out a PhD… Man, its hard! Got some nasty feedback from a moody editor that put me off a bit, but now I’m back in the saddle and ready to go at it again. Feeling quite confident… at least some of the time… :)
Aside from my attempts(!) to write manuscripts for scientific papers, I’ve been engaged in blogging at marinbiobloggen (in Norwegian). Lots of exciting material. I’ve come to worry a great deal about the Norwegian management of marine resources. Therefore, my next posts will deal with some of these issues. Hopefully, I’ll be able to present them in a more global perspective than is done at marinbiobloggen.
Today we had a breakthrough at Marinbiologene DA. The first sketchy parts of our blog was formed, and it is already starting to look promising. Next out is getting our website up and running. Really looking forward to that. The idea that brought forth this project was first conceived in 2006. It’s been on hold partly because we didn’t quite know where to begin and partly because of other work that had to be done. Our aim is to establish a base of information concerning research on marine biology in Norway, monitoring, conservation and management of our coastal systems and to educate people on the importance of caring about the marine environment. These are our first baby steps…
