Respect your Elders: Rockfish Conservation in the Salish Sea (at UVIC)
February 26, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Rockfish are fascinating fish, with more than 30 species in BC. Some have been aged at more than 200 years. Many species of rockfish are in peril in BC’s waters, and despite conservation efforts, recovery in the Strait of Georgia is slow. Dr. Natalie Ban, Associate Professor, Uvic and Jenna Falk, Galiano Conservacy Association will tell the story of a partnership among the University of Victoria, the Galiano Conservancy Association and Valdes Island Conservancy, seeking to understand why compliance with conservation rules is lacklustre, and acting to turn the tide for rockfish.
We meet at 7:30 in Room 159, Fraser Building, University of Victoria. Everyone is welcome.
Presented in cooperation with the Victoria Natural History Society.
