Okinawa Sampling-The Ishikaki Island 2

  It was the last day in Okinawa for sampling. We went to Kabira Bay  for getting the more samples, this time the crabs Zosimus aseneus and Palythoa tuberculosa.They contain Paralytic shellfish poison (PSP) and Palytoxin (PTX), respectively.The number of samples was not bad, and all of us got wet in a heavy rain. But in a word, it was an interesting experience.
