Forage Fish in the Puget Sound - Cocktails & Fishtales Presentation

June 19th 2019 | 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Carly Vester | (253) 514-0187 | carly@harborwildwatch.org
Location: Gig Harbor Taproom

Phill Dionne, biologist with Washington Fish & Wildlife, will be discussing forage fish in the Puget Sound. Forage fish include herring, anchovies, and sandlances – all fish that are generally preyed on by larger predators for food. Phill and his team have been focusing on research and conservation of these species by assessing population structures and spawning surveys. Cocktails & Fishtales is a science-social series for ages 21 and over. Held once a month, each event features a speaker on an ecological topic at either Gig Harbor Taproom (3155 Harborview Drive) or Ocean5 (5268 Point Fosdick Drive NW). These programs are an opportunity to enjoy an evening out in Gig Harbor while engaging with like-minded eco-enthusiasts in a lively and social learning experience. Harbor WildWatch Steward Club members have free admission; guest tickets cost $5 each at the door. Cocktails & Fishtales are educational events. As such, Harbor WildWatch does not endorse any speaker, service, or product represented at Cocktails & Fishtales.
