Ask a Barnegat Bay Scientist: Fisheries in Barnegat Bay
August 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The recreational and commercial fisheries in Barnegat Bay harvest many different finfish and shellfish species, which all have their unique biological characteristics and differing fisheries management plans. Dr. Douglas Zemeckis will provide an overview of the most popular species caught in Barnegat Bay, such as summer flounder, striped bass, bluefish, hard clams, and blue crabs. Dr. Zemeckis works as the Marine Extension Agent for Rutgers Cooperative Extension serving Ocean, Atlantic, and Monmouth Counties with a focus on fisheries, aquaculture, and coastal resource management.
