As we near the end of this leg of the 2012 Gulf of Alaska Project summer survey, I wanted to thank the person that keeps us going, day in and day out. Penelope (Penny) Mallos cooks homemade dishes for every meal and surprises us with a freshly baked desert each evening. She gets up early, and stays up late, cooking and cleaning for all 12 people aboard. A good cook keeps the crew happy, and a happy crew is productive and efficient. After a long day of measuring fish, sorting zooplankton, and taking water samples in the wind and rain, there’s nothing better than coming inside to a delicious warm meal.

Penny, I invite you… no, I beg you to come back out with us next year! You are the best!

The Cook 🙂
