Science for Citizens "Little Fish, Big Impacts: Forage Fish and Ecosystem-Based Fisheries Management"

Event Date: 
October 27, 2015 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Forage fishes are small, but abundant, fishes in Chesapeake Bay and other coastal waters. They are food for a multitude of predators, including striped bass, ospreys, and dolphins. The most abundant forage fish in the Bay is the Atlantic menhaden, which supports the Bay’s biggest fishery. CBL scientist Ed Houde will discuss forage fishes, their management, and implications for ecosystem-based management of fisheries. All seminars are free and open to the public. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Please contact Sarah Brzezinski at 410-326-7460, or brzezins@umces.edu with any questions.
