Okinawa Sampling-The Iriomote Island

We left Nagasaki on Nagasaki Maru on June 15th . We arrived at  Iriomote Island after a three-days sailing, and the weather was sunny. Our laboratory was catching the Okinawa puffer, while Greg's lab was measuring the conditions of the seawater. I was sampling together with Greg  this time, but the long rowing was strenuous, especially with the strong sea wind. Unfortunately, I was exhausted after  half the survey. I'm sorry for my performance...
