Larval Fish of the Webhannet River Estuary Lunch and Learn


November 6

Newly hatched fish are unable to swim against the tides, so they drift with currents as zooplankton. Since 2008, scientists from the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve have been collecting these fish larvae from Wells Harbor four times a month. They are tracking larval fish to understand how climate change and warming ocean temperatures may affect the timing and success of spawning in the Gulf of Maine. In this lunch and learn, Jeremy Miller, a research associate at the Wells Reserve, will describe the early lives of fishes and what 10 years of local data is telling scientists. $2 suggested donation. Wells Reserve at Laudholm.
