Description

Join us for a program about a current study of fish being conducted on the Homosassa River.

The project, Investigating Drivers of Seasonal Shifts in Fish Abundance in the Homosassa River System, will be explained by fisheries biologist Taylor Dluzniewski. There will be an opportunity to ask questions about the project at the conclusion of the program. The Homosassa project uses acoustic telemetry, electrofishing, mark-recapture, habitat assessment and abiotic measurements to investigate the increase in marine fish during winter months and their potential effects on freshwater fish. The biologists are using an ecosystem-based approach aimed at protecting species dependent upon the health of this freshwater environment for forage, refuge and reproduction.
