“The Fishes of the Salish Sea”
Jay Orr, PhD, research fisheries biologist, NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service, Seattle, WA
Pacific viperfish, northern flashlightfish, longsnout prickleback—just a few of the species (many previously unknown) identified in a 35-year survey of the Salish Sea. The report and forthcoming book, co-authored by our speaker, are sure to become valuable references for further scientific work on Salish Sea fish. “If you don’t first know what you have, it’s impossible to know what you might be losing," says co-author, Dr. Ted Pietsch.
