Sharks for the Wee Lady Deeplings

There’s been an awesome explosion of science oriented clothes for girls in the past few years, spurred on greatly by the awesome success of Princess Awesome‘s Kickstarter campaign. They started with an outfit that definitely appealed to the DSN set – a pirate dress! Now Princess Awesome has returned to the sea with sharks! Check out their “Fiercely Jaw-some” dress for the budding Eugenie Clark in your life. Or, as my own wee deepling says, “CHOMP CHOMP!”

(And let’s hope giant squid, isopods or, even kelp are next!)


COI Disclaimer: I went to college with one of the kick-butt ladies who founded Princess Awesome, which makes me even more of a fan of what they’re trying to do. I might also shamelessly send her pictures of my daughter in their outfits. Just sayin’.

Jarrett Byrnes is an Assistant Professor of Biology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston where he studies kelp forests and salt marshes. He earned his Ph.D. at UC Davis working at the Bodega Marine Lab studying the consequences of losing predator diversity in the sea. He loves cooking, and recommends trying to make bacon dashi: put two rinced pieces of kelp (~6") in 8 cups water. Heat to a boil and turn off. Steep for 10-15 min (depending on how kelpy you like it). Remove kelp, add 3/4 lb smoky bacon. Simmer 30 minutes. Add mirin, soy sauce, sake as needed for flavor. Let cool and refrigerate. Skim off fat. Now you have an amazing base to cook fingerling potatoes and clams in. Top with chopped crispy bacon and green onions (or pureed with oil). And for, well, everything else.
