Hanging On by a Scute: Maryland’s Sturgeon up a Creek
Tuesday, October 25, 2022 from 7:00pm – 8:00pm
Presented by Dr. Dave Secor
Sturgeons coexisted with dinosaurs, and survived asteroid blasts and glacial eras. The conundrum of sturgeon is that despite their evolutionary resilience, they are particularly sensitive to human impacts. In this seminar, Dr. Dave Secor will introduce how Atlantic sturgeon, once thought to be extinct in Maryland, were re-discovered as a small relict population in the Marshyhope Creek (Eastern Shore). He will also discuss the threats, such as a large salmon factory, that jeopardize the recovery of this endangered species.
