North Carolina Sea Grant’s Hook, Line and Science!
This month Hook, Line & Science turns two years old. Yay! During that time, posts on flounder identification, changes in shrimp abundance, and fish tagging have been the most popular on the site, but there have been many others. In fact, with this post we also celebrate our 100thnew post. Not bad, considering there have been only 107 Mondays since our launch on December 3, 2018. That’s important because we always post on Mondays.
Our goal, as scientists who specialize in marine fisheries, has been to provide saltwater anglers, in particular, and a broader audience, in general, with easy access to science-based information related to fishing and fisheries.
And after all, science really isn’t that useful unless we all have a chance to learn about it.
Over these last 2 years, we personally have summarized a ton of different studies – and we have also recruited 29 guest authors to discuss their own work, including posts written by 14 students.
Coastal habitats are vital for the state’s important fish species, as well as for fish that migrate along the East Coast.
As always, you can find out more details about the studies and even access the original research articles through Hook, Line and Science.
Thanks for reading!
