Fisheries meeting held at Rice
June 28, 2016
Virginia Commonwealth University recently hosted the annual meeting of the Sustainable Fisheries Goal Implementation Team at the VCU Rice Rivers Center. The Fisheries GIT is a consortium of federal and state agencies that manage important Chesapeake Bay commercial fisheries, including Blue Crabs, Oysters, and Striped Bass. During the two-day meeting, over fifty academic scientists, agency biologists, and resource managers from throughout the Bay Region took part in technical presentations and heard about VCU's own applied research initiatives related to water quality, ecosystem restoration, fishery ecology, and environmental technology.
