Join GraceAnne Taylor of Save Barnegat Bay to learn about its mission to restore and protect Barnegat Bay and its ecosystem by being a strong and independent voice for the Bay throughout the watershed, including all of Ocean and part of Monmouth Counties.
A short hike will follow, weather permitting.
This program will focus on blue crabs and methods used to capture crabs. Dr. John Wnek will discuss a project in which derelict crab pots were recovered from Barnegat Bay over the course of four years with some results on bycatch. It will also focus on research that is addressing optimal crab captures and reduction of bycatch. It will be an interactive program and there will be ways for you to get involved in our new crabbing initiative. Register Here
