CBNERR-VA Discovery Lab – Bye-Bye Bycatch

April 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

What do dolphins, sea turtles, whales, and sea birds all have in common? In April, our Discovery Lab will be all about keeping marine animals safe while fishing. Test out your skills building bycatch reduction devices in fun engineering challenges or learn about what technologies keep fish in nets and turtles out. Derek Jackson will talk about his research on bycatch reduction in Pacific halibut fisheries on the West Coast of the United States. Come join us to find out more! Register here.

Discovery Labs are free, family-friendly programs provided each month by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Virginia (CBNERR-VA) at VIMS. Designed with elementary-aged youth and their parents in mind, each lab focuses on a different topic related to the Chesapeake Bay and our local environment and includes exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on activities as well as a short presentation (from 6:30-7:00 PM) by an expert on the topic.
