2011 Fish and Fisheries Public Seminar Series

Emily Chandler Writes-

Hello Joey,
I am the program manager for the Large Pelagics Research Center.  We are a scientific research group that recently moved from the University of New Hampshire to Gloucester and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. We conduct biological and ecological research on pelagic species including tunas, sharks, billfish, and sea turtles and our director, Dr. Molly Lutcavage, has been working with the local Gloucester fishing fleet on bluefin tuna research since 1993. We are now located in Gloucester, MA and, as part of the Marine Fisheries Institute, are working to revitalize the UMass Marine Station at Hodgkins Cove.
We are co-hosting a public seminar series with the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center on Thursday evenings from March 31st through May 5th.  Talks will be on a variety of fish topics ranging from bluefin tuna to great white sharks.

  • Nice lineup for talks. And great to see that work is beginning in Bayview- as neighbors it exciting to see that site come back into good use.
