Webinar: Estimating Fish and Invertebrate Production Associated with Key Coastal Habitats in the U.S.

OC Overview


To what degree do oyster reef, seagrass bed, and salt marsh habitats contribute to the abundance of fish and invertebrate species in the U.S.? What biological and environmental factors have the greatest influence on this production for each habitat?   

On Tuesday, August 6 at 3:00 pm Eastern time/12:00 pm Pacific time, the Lenfest Ocean Program will host a webinar introducing a new project to examine these questions. Our speakers will include: 
•    Bryan DeAngelis, The Nature Conservancy
•    Dr. Philine zu Ermgassen, The University of Edinburgh
•    Dr. Jonathan Grabowski, Northeastern University

This information could improve the ability of managers to target habitat restoration, conservation, and fisheries management measures to maximize ecosystem productivity and economic benefits. Download the project fact sheet to learn more.
