I study long term migratory fish behavior by comparing their genomes and hypothesizing what forces are driving population subdivision. It's pretty fascinating stuff, but the life histories of migratory marine fishes can really complicate the analytical part of this work, which only makes it that much more interesting (and oh my god so frustrating!).
