Danielle Cholewiak - Sound Pollution in the Ocean and the Effects on Wildlife
Click to hide meeting description

Human-produced noise is on the rise, including in our deepest waters and most pristine habitats. Many marine species rely on sound in their everyday lives, for everything from finding food, to finding mates, to finding the right place to live. How does noise in the ocean affect marine animals, and what can we do about it?  Learn how scientists use passive acoustic technology to listen in on the ocean and what these recordings can tell us about our marine environment - including right here in Massachusetts Bay.

Danielle has a BSc in both Biology and Resource Ecology and Management from the University of Michigan, and a PhD from Cornell University's Department of Neurobiology and Behavior and the Bioacoustics Research Program at the Laboratory of Ornithology. She worked as a postdoctoral scientist at Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, and is now a senior bioacoustician in NOAA's NEFSC Passive Acoustic Research Group working on towed array data collected from our vessel based stock assessment surveys as well as baleen whale acoustics and ocean noise research.

Vin Malkoski - Lobster and Shellfish Regulations for Divers
Click to hide meeting description

One of the unique experiences of New England diving is catching lobsters. At the May General Meeting, Vin Malkoski will go over all the laws and regulations straight from the Division of Marine Fisheries. It's a great way to find out what you can and can't catch, and learn some of the techniques from your fellow divers!

An active New England diver since 1975, Vin is a long-time NAUI and DAN O2 Instructor, and has served as Diving Safety Officer for the MA Division of Marine Fisheries since 1989. As a senior biologist with DMF, Vin coordinates the Division’s Habitat Conservation, Artificial Reef, and Clean Vessel Act Programs.


General Meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month, at the New England Aquarium Conference Center (located on the first floor of the Harbor Garage). Click here for directions

Every month a lucky dive club member gets to dive in the NEAq's Giant Ocean Tank.


Social Hour Before the General Meeting

Join us at a local restraunt before the next General Meeting. Anytime after 5:30 and there should be a few members hanging around. Stop by for drinks, appetizers, dinner, or just to say hi.

We will pick the location a day or two before the meeting, and post it on Facebook, and on the website home page

These get-togethers are meant to help answer questions and talk with new or less active members. We'll tell you about the latest club news and hear about your interests in diving.

If you are an active member, please come out and help us greet people.

Hope to see you there!

Officer meeting

First Wednesday of every month
Location: Varies

Every month there is also a meeting where the officers discuss club issues. It is held at a different place each month, usually at a member's house, restaurant or other informal setting.

It is open to the membership, and is the perfect opportunity to bring up issues directly to the board. if you would like to attend, ask an officer and they'll let you know the location for that month.
