WHSTEP General Meeting
Thursday, January 24
Woods Hole Science Aquarium, NOAA
Please join us at the Aquarium, and learn more about the research taking place at Fisheries
We will hear from two research groups at the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) lab in Woods Hole. Dvora Hart, of the Population Dynamics group, will speak about sea scallop fishery management and sea floor surveys using the Habitat Mapping Camera (HabCam). We will also hear from the Ecosystem Assessment group about climate change research related to fisheries. Opportunities and materials for teachers and students will be available.
