October 6, 2020: Striped Bass are Built for Success: Weathering pollution, climate change, & their own charismatic stripes
Date: October 6, 2020
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
FREE public webinar.
Chesapeake Bay striped bass move up and down the Atlantic coast from their estuarine birthplace. Until recently we have only seen glimpses of this movement when tagged fish are caught by anglers or scientists. Now with electronic transmitters embedded in the tummies, or chemical tracers in bones in their ears we can follow them along on their journey – learning why and when they move and how these migrations affect their growth, survival and reproduction. Hear internationally recognized expert, Dr. Dave Secor talk about his most recent work on this striped nomad of the Bay.
