"Careful They Bite!"

Deep Sea Fishing
     Hey everyone,       
    This was a great week of work as I was located at Castle Island on Wednesday and Thursday. I had not been to Castle Island in a few years prior to then and I had forgotten the layout of the island which made it fun when I arrived there. I went and explored the places that I was allowed to venture into which was nice. I ended the week on an all-day deep-sea fishing trip and caught many cool and new fish species that I had not heard of and interacted with. We also saw a few whales and a leather back sea turtle which I didn't realize how big they were until I was up close to it on the boat, it was a great way to end the week!
My amazing Catch

Climate change has affected me in a plethora of ways when it comes to my daily life. One of the most notable ways is that there are a lot more efforts to reduce the use of vehicles and large Co2 releasing machines which is why blue bikes are so common in the city of Boston where people can pay to rent out a bike for the day and ride to their needed destinations opposed to driving and releasing more harmful chemicals into the atmosphere. 
Something that I noticed that climate change has impacted is the type of fish that we catch, although I have only been fishing for about two years now with Save the Harbor I've heard many stories from fisherman and other people that fished in the harbor decades ago that back then there was always an abundance of fish and due to over fishing and climate change those fish have migrated south and off the coast because the water temperatures and pH levels have gotten too high for them to live. I believe change has been detrimental to the marine life in the harbor and all organisms on earth but on the contrary, I think that we as a society and people are headed in the right direction when it comes to making this planet healthier and we are on the up tick.
