March 18, 2017, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ East Hampton Shellfish Hatchery
This lecture is part of the EHSEED program, however, one does not need to be a member of EHSEED to participate.
The lecture will include a presentation on the shellfish biology of the three commercial species that the town shellfish hatchery grows annually. We will also discuss broodstock conditioning and algae culture in the hatchery setting. Dissections of adult shellfish will enhance learning. The lecture will culminate with a tour of the broodstock conditioning and algae culture aspects of the hatchery. As a teaser participants will also be able to see all stages of oyster hatchery culture, from larvae to recently set oysters.
Refreshments will be served. Be prepared for a standing only crowd!
