The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Erin Levesque on March 23 at 2 p.m., for this unique program. The Estuarine Finfish Section at the Marine Resources Division (SCDNR) is tasked with utilizing long-term fishery monitoring programs, genetic tools and culture of marine finfish in order to effectively and responsibly inform management of popular finfish species. If you are a recreational angler or if you are interested in our rich estuarine ecosystem, this program will explain how the biologists of the SCDNR sample fish populations in our coastal environment and design research questions with the goal of protecting and preserving our marine resources. Levesque is the manager of the Waddell Mariculture Center and a Biologist with the Estuarine Finfish Section, SCDNR.
