Upcoming Meeting

Hello fisheries folks!
Join us next Tuesday, Feb 5, at 5:30 for pizza and refreshments in the atrium of David Clark Labs. We’ll kick off the meeting at 6 PM in 102 DCL with announcements of several outreach opportunities coming up this spring, and then we’ll hear a great talk from our guest speaker, and NCSU alum, Ryan Speckman! Ryan is the Co-Founder of Locals Seafood, and will present “Responsibly Sourced NC Seafood:  How two NCSU Fisheries & Wildlife graduates created a Two Million Dollar seafood business.”
Also, remote access is back!  If you are remotely located and want to listen in, join us via Google Meet (https://meet.google.com/vgu-rhrw-uey) at 6 PM.
Remember to check out “Guess that Fish!” on the flyer (attached) and come with an answer for a chance to win a prize! We’re looking forward to a great semester and hope to see many of you Tuesday!

Neuse River Mussel Salvage Effort

Hi Fishy Crew & “Fellow Mussel Heads”!

As you may be aware, the Milburnie Dam on the Neuse River is being removed, so Three Oaks Engineering is organizing efforts to salvage mussels in this area and move them further into the channel.

NCSU SFS will be forming a volunteer group to help with the second mussel salvage effort the week of Oct 9. The approach will involve paddling (canoe, kayak) the impounded section and collecting mussels that become stranded along the banks, and moving them further into the water.

Please contact Bobby Cope (wrcope@ncsu.ed) if you are able to join or are interested in volunteering, and if you have a vessel that you can use (kayak, canoe, raft, etc.). We will be sending a solid date once we hear from the organizers.

SFS Officers


Volunteer for Shad in the Classroom

Hello All!

We are in need of some fabulous graduate students that would like to participate in this FINtastic outreach program within our local schools.

In an hour we ask that you give a short presentation (all ready made) and help kids dissect their very own fish. The kids were so inspired to be a scientist and they had so much fun getting their hands dirty.

The fish are all ready here and waiting for you to grab the day of or night before in a cooler.

Want to do this but nervous you don’t know enough about fish?

No worries. Its super basic external anatomy and just the body cavity for internal. A quick review of the ppt and maybe a google search and you should be fine. Most students are just excited to have science in the classroom.

Any further inquiries and the sign up sheet please email one of the sfs officers (Emilee Briggs, Kayelyn Simmons, or Tiffany Penland). Shad in the Classroom
