October Monthly Meeting – State of Howe Sound Health

When: October 6, 2015 from 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Adjacent to downtown Vancouver, Howe Sound is one of North America’s southernmost fjords. With waters up to 800ft deep, Howe Sound is home to more than 650 different species of fish and invertebrates.

Jessica Schultz of the Howe Sound Research Group – Vancouver Aquarium, will present on their field work.  This has included long term monitoring of boot and cloud sponges, the re-introduction of black rockfish, annual surveys of lingcod spawning and juvenile spot prawns, and more. The Fish Research Team is the only continuous field presence monitoring Howe Sound, as well as the only continuous program in the entire Strait of Georgia region.

Come learn what their research is uncovering on the state of this ecosystem at the Vancouver Planetarium / Museum, Tuesday October 6th.
