Rice Rivers Center hosts meeting on invasive species in the Chesapeake Bay

February 4, 2020

Last week the Rice Rivers Center hosted a two-day meeting focused on the impact and control of invasive fishes in the Chesapeake Bay. Over 50 individuals representing all of the Bay States learned about new science on invasive species, opportunities to build commercial fisheries by harvesting invasive species, and created management plans to be implemented by the states. Participants included a broad range of stakeholders, including commercial and recreational fishers, seafood economists, scientists, and resource managers.
