Where the Wild Quahogs Are: Looking at Quahog Larval Supply and Distribution in the Upper Narragansett Bay

Come learn about the recent research effort to investigate quahog population dynamics in Narragansett Bay. It has been speculated that Rhode Island Shellfish Department of Environment Management Areas A & B are a primary source of quahog larvae for distribution throughout the Bay and increased fishing pressure in that area may impact Bay-wide larval supply and recruitment. 

Hence, management strategies may need to be modified to account for this potential impact. Meet the researchers and learn more about their study and findings at this “Feature Presentation” of the first stakeholder meeting of 2014.
