I'm far from an 'experienced' member but I can say that personally I am very interested in the monitoring the boards to either help answer questions, discuss current marine-related topics or, and what seems to have been the most common as of late, give advice on pursuing either an education or job within Marine Biology.
As a long-time member (and moderator) I welcome you! It's definitely a lot quieter around here than it used to be - maybe you can help us breathe some life back into the forums. Anything marine biology related is totally fair game.

If you think Education is expensive, try Ignorance. "The inhabitants of the sea have much to teach us." ~Wyland "I have slipped the bonds of Earth to dance with dolphins." ~Wyland "If human civilization is going to invade the waters of the earth, then let it be first of all to carry a message of respect." ~ Jacques Cousteau NOSB: A great way for high schoolers to learn about the oceans. A whale killed a dolphin but he was acquitted because he didn't do it on porpoise.
