South Atlantic Fishery Management Council

Seminar Series: Reproductive Resilience in the Protogynous Gag Grouper

Time: to
Location: Via webinar only.

The Council will host a presentation on the reproductive resilience in fish, which is the ability of a population to maintain reproductive success to produce long-term population stability. Fish managed by the Council have diverse reproductive strategies and these reproductive strategies along with environmental variables and behavioral traits should be considered when developing assessments and management regulations. A case study on gag grouper will be presented.
