LEVEL 2: PROCESSING
The goal of level two is to provide a descriptive representation of your collection.
We still want to get you in the water trawling but now,
we want you to go through the samples and tell us exactly what you see.
Note: Samples should initially be placed in an airtight jar filled with one to two caps full of hydrogen peroxide and water directly after trawling.
