Seminar Series: “Release Mortality Estimation of South Atlantic Reef Fishes”

Time: to
Location: Via webinar only.

Dr. Brendan Runde, NOAA Fisheries Post Doc, provides a presentation estimating release mortality for South Atlantic reef fishes (snapper grouper species).  Release mortality is a significant concern in the South Atlantic region where a substantial number of snapper grouper species are released and barotrauma, depredation, and other factors can limit the survival of released fish.  Dr. Runde discusses release mortality for several species including Black Sea Bass, Gray Triggerfish,  Deepwater Groupers, and Red Snapper.
