Relishing job: Chris Flook said the move to Bios represents “an
opportunity to play with a bigger science toybox”?

The Bermuda Institute for Ocean Sciences has hired environmentalist Chris Flook as its new Small Boat and Docks Supervisor.

Mr Flook worked as the collector of marine specimens at the Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo for 16 years and was well known for assisting visiting scientists carrying out research around the island.

He more recently served as a consultant for the Pew Environment Group as director of the Blue Halo initiative and became a local face in the battle against invasive lionfish.

Mr Flook said the move to Bios represents “an opportunity to play with a bigger science toybox” to address ongoing scientific investigations.
