Lab Bench Fee: This includes most expenses (e.g., lab use including instruments and equipment, use of the boats or truck, tank fills, etc. except for gas for boats, expenses for boat drivers and dive buddies who are not station personnel, and anything more than incidental use of consumables such as alcohol and plastic ware. By excluding these items we are able to keep the bench fees affordable.
The following categories do not pay lab bench fee:
STRI and SI employees, SI and STRI fellows, MSN fellows, and STRI research associates. Other visitors accompanying the STRI researcher will be charged at the rate appropriate to their status.
Volunteers must work with a visiting PI who is in any of the categories listed in Bocas Fees.
Spouses who stay in the dorm but who do not participate in research, pay only for the dorm. Those helping with research fall into one of the above categories.
Please contact the station manager if you wish to arrange to have catered meals during your stay. This can be arranged but the prices cannot be predicted much in advance and prices vary with group size and kinds of meals requested.
