This project is so huge, that I am not able to complete it without the generous assistance of many individuals. First, I have to thank my wonderful wife Polla, and my two children, Connor and Abigail. They have put up with my salty obsession, enduring countless hours of me prattling on about brine shrimp and mud-flats. Their patience and support have been priceless. The kids have also kept me company and helped out on various excursions out to shoot for which I am grateful.
