Grouper Moon: Saving One of the Last Great Populations of an Endangered Caribbean Reef Fish
Brice Semmens, marine ecologist
Historically, Nassau grouper were considered one of the most important shallow water fisheries in the Caribbean, yet today are rarely caught. Why has the species declined so precipitously, and what can be done to reverse the trend? Join Brice Semmens as he presents findings from the Grouper Moon project, a long-term research program in the Cayman Islands focused on the conservation of one of the last great populations of this endangered Caribbean Icon.
