The time in Dungeon
Dungeon has been our working area throughout the research period. It serves as a:
Microscope and forcep are the main equipment to identify the shrimps. The live shrimps were put into the freezer in dungeon, let to die in cold and eventually preserve in alcohol 75%.
Identifying the species of prawn
As every fieldtrip we went down to mangrove, the equipment was clean to get rid of mud by washing them thoroughly at the sink of dungeon, the equipment included: measuring tapes, sieves, all vials and boxes, and also, our booties.
Throughout the period, most of the time spent in dungeon was to sort out the species of prawns collected after every fieldtrip. It takes time to get myself familiar with the skill and technique to identify the species of the prawns by observing their morphological characteristic under microscope. Working alone in dungeon sometimes did made me feel lonely, as nobody will talk to you except the sound of aircon and the radio provided by Yi Xiong. However, it is a good place to focus and concentrate as there are no distraction.
