A fun happy-hour-timed presentation on topics of interest about the Eel River watershed. Go to eelriverrecovery.org or Eel River Recovery Project Facebook page for Zoom links. April 9: The Secret Lives of Eel River Fishes Revealed - Patrick Higgins. ERRP Managing Director Pat Higgins is also a fisheries biologist and has been underwater all over the Eel River basin photo and video documenting fish since 2010. He is a fun presenter and he wants to share the good, the bad and the ugly. Videos of hundreds of Chinook salmon schooling at the mouth of the Middle Fork, swarms of coho juveniles in upper South Fork refugia, huge pikeminnow lying in wait to ambush native fish juveniles, territorial green sunfish dancing, and even balling catfish. Along the way, Pat will address the status and trends of Pacific salmon species and what we can do to help them have a better chance of survival in the face of climate change. See the Eel River underwater from your couch as we kick off Eel Zoom at 5 PM on Friday, April 9. Don’t miss it!
