Atlantic Menhaden:
Stories from Early Life
Presented by Dr. Tom Miller
Atlantic menhaden is a critical component of estuarine and marine ecosystems all along the Atlantic coast of the US. It supports important commercial fisheries and serves as forage (food) for many fish and bird predators. Yet, it begins its life as a 3 mm, transparent lava far out to sea that can barely swim or eat. Before it can end up in the stomach of striped bass or an osprey, or survive to produce the next generation, it must “recruit” to nursery areas. This talk will explore what factors influence its survival, growth and distribution by combining computer modeling, laboratory experiments and statistical analyses.
