The tattoo is of a delta smelt, a California native estuarine fish that
was relatively common when I started my doctoral studies at UCD but
which, by the time I got the PhD, I ended up supporting with Peter Moyle
for endangered status. Now it has been listed since 93 and has been a
focus of my work with EPA for decades. It is doing very poorly in the
last 10 years so clearly I have failed in my job. The least I could do
was to ensure that there would be one deltoid smelt left for as long as
I'm alive.

New tattoo of a lobster to match the shark on my opposite shoulder,
see page 19 of this tattoo gallery.
Reminds me of the days I get out diving & lobster fishing.

Being a fish ecologist, I have always loved fishes. It has taken me
about 10 years of thinking to decide what tattoo to get. I lived in
Alaska after graduate school for 8 years and did some research on
Rockfishes - my three sons were born there also. I finally decided on a
Pacific Northwest Native art inspired rockfish with my three sons names
incorporated into the design (Reid, Hayden and Hawk, for Hawkins).
/Sebastes sp/. are such a beautiful and diverse family.
