General Program, Jacksonville: Harmful Gulf Fishing Practices
Oct 11, 2010
Monday 7:30 p.m.
The Gulf of Mexico is the only known spawning area for Western Atlantic bluefin tuna. The Gulf also provides important habitat to a variety of other severely depleted marine animals, such as leatherback sea turtles and sailfish.
Join the Pew Environment Groups Cameron Jaggard to learn about the common threat that surface longline fishing gear poses to these rare and beautiful marine animals, what is being done to protect them in the wake of the oil spill disaster, and how you can take action.
Social time and lots of appetizers from 6:45 to 7:30. If your last name begins with A-L, please bring an appetizer to share. Everyone please bring your own cup.
