Ellen K. Pikitch: : “Little Fish, Big Impact: Managing a crucial link in ocean food webs.”
Wednesday, April 25, 3:30 p.m.
Nice Hall


Small schooling fish, such as anchovies, herring, sardine, and menhaden, are often referred to as “forage fish” in recognition of their importance as food for other marine life such as mammals, seabirds, and other fish. Currently, more than one of every three fish caught globally is a forage fish, and demand and price are growing. The consequences of the massive removals of these small fish on the survival and health of other ocean life will be explored, and the economic value of forage fish both in the water (as prey) and out of the water (as catch), will be presented.
