**STATEMENT OF RETRACTION**
I wish to thank the knowledgeable divers who brought to my attention an important oversight in my collection request. As a recreational diver, you CANNOT collect invertebrates without an authorized permit. As a scientific diver and PhD student at a museum, I am covered under my advisor’s permits and have permission to collect these specific amphipods after extensive training and approval of dive plans from my institution’s dive safety officer. Unless you are in a state which allows recreational collection of invertebrates with a fishing license (e.g., Florida), please do NOT collect animals.
However, photography or videography of these animals (“Step 1” in the poster image) will still be super helpful toward research endeavors. Please send along any observations that you make to my contact info.
My apologies for the confusion.
Sincerely,
Brittany
