Wednesday, August 29, 2018. 12:00PM. Webcast: Cooperative Monitoring Program for Fish Spawning Aggregations in the Gulf of Mexico. Brad Erisman, The University of Texas at Austin. Sponsored by NOAA. More information here.
Fish spawning aggregations are key components of ecosystems and fisheries in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, but they’ve received limited attention for research and management. This presentation will review a project supported by the NOAA RESTORE Act Science Program to compile and evaluate existing information on fish spawning aggregations in the Gulf of Mexico as the basis to design a long-term, cooperative, Gulf-wide monitoring program. The results of the project, including details on existing data gaps and priorities for future research and management, will be highlighted.
