“The One Who Got Away”

Artist Sydney Inouye beautifully painted, “The One Who Got Away” for the science crew of NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette. Sydney is a 2014 graduate of Mid-Pacific Institute in Honolulu, HI and one of  Suzanne Acord’s (TAS, 2014) former students. She is very interested in squid and after learning about Dr. Acord’s Teacher at Sea experience volunteered to paint a squid as a gift for the science crew. Dr. Don Kobayashi, NOAA Chief Scientist for the NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette received the painting on behalf of the rest of the science crew.
