New Portable Weighing Tripod a Success for 2011!

Check out our video showing our new portable weighing tripod in action. This video was taken during our last ocean sunfish stranding of the 2011 season. This carcass washed up on Sandy Neck Beach in Barnstable, MA on December 23, 2011. NECWA was contacted on December 26th and we were able to head down to Barnstable on December 27th.

Thanks again to David Clapp and Sam McGee for putting this tripod together for NECWA. So far, we have been able to weigh 3 relatively fresh ocean sunfish carcasses and they are between 350 to 650 pounds. Thanks also to Nick for this great video. Again our NECWA team consisted of Tammy, Michael, Patty, Nick and Krill. Thanks to Rangers Matthey and Nina for all their help. Go Team!
