Tuna, Debunked: Myths and Misconceptions About Atlantic Bluefin Tuna

Sea State Lectures
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Join us for the fourth session of our Fall 2017 Joan M. Kelly Sea State Lecture Series, "Debunking Ocean Myths."

Throughout the series, our speakers will challenge some of the commonly held beliefs associated with their areas of expertise. Our journey continues with GMRI Research Scientists, Lisa Kerr and Walt Golet. 

Join us in November to hear their talk, "Tuna, Debunked: Myths and Misconceptions About Atlantic Bluefin Tuna." Lisa is a fisheries ecologist broadly interested in understanding the structure and dynamics of fish populations, with the goal of enhancing our ability to sustainably manage fisheries and ecosystems as a whole. Walt is a post doctoral research associate that holds a joint appointment with the University of Maine's School of Marine Sciences and the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. During the past five years, Walt has been studying the energetic condition, spatial distribution, foraging ecology, age and growth of bluefin tuna and broadbill swordfish in the Atlantic.
