One Scientist’s Mission To Scan All Fish
In a tiny island laboratory in the Northwesternmost corner of Washington, one marine biologist is on a mission: scan every known fish species in the world. It’s a painstaking and smelly task, but one that promises to fundamentally change the way scientists and educators look at marine anatomy. Adam Summers, a fish expert at the University of Washington, has been 3-D scanning fish for decades, but it was always a complicated and expensive undertaking. Getting access to the right equipment was a struggle and each specimen would take nearly a day to process. In late 2015 Friday Harbor Laboratories on San Juan Island acquired its own computed tomography scanner and Summers’ team set out to achieve what had once seemed impossible: to create 3-D models of all 33,000 known fish species.

Washington produces over two thirds of the apples consumed in the United States. But with a continually shrinking labor pool and increasing market demands from overseas, the apple industry has struggled to keep up in recent year, despite record-setting crop yields. To meet these challenges farmers, entrepreneurs and scientists are looking to a new generation of automated and semi-autonomous technology to reinforce, and someday perhaps even replace, the lacking labor force in the apple business.
