Cod Psychologist

We have become quite famous for our small fishes up here at the Ny-Ålesund research station, and we are asked daily by scientists and none-scientists how our small fishes are doing.

After a few drinks at the Zeppelin Bar of Ny-Ålesund, I was asked what kind of job I was doing. As I replied several times “Toksikolog” (toxicologist in norwegian) but was poorly understood…. I ended up being a “Torsk-psykolog”, literaly a Cod-psychologist.

Well, Cod psychologist is a quite suitable name since we are like nannys, parents, friends and nurses to our little fishes, feeding them and doing our best to make them happy. Another month of acclimation to go and our time as psychologist will be over and the toxicologists will be back!
