Join the Wildlands Trust for Not Ours, Just Our Turn: The Past, Present, and Future of Striped Bass in Massachusetts, a public talk by Ben Gahagan!

Striped bass are a popular food source here in Massachusetts. Join fisheries biologist Ben Gahagan for this second installment in the 7-part World Migratory Fish Day Lecture Series. Learn about striped bass life history, their migration along the East Coast and through Massachusetts, and the history of striped bass fishery in our state. Ben will discuss current research findings by the MA Department of Marine Fisheries and the changes happening in recreational and commercial fishery.

The World Migratory Fish Day Lecture Series is brought to you by the Town of Plymouth Department of Marine and Environmental Affairs in partnership with Wildlands Trust and Woods Hole Sea Grant. The Town of Plymouth will be celebrating its 400th anniversary in 2020 and stream restoration will be a highlight of the celebrations. In recognition of years of effort, the Town of Plymouth was designated the North American Headquarters for World Fish Migration Day 2020.
