Don't let their size fool you. Phytoplankton may be microscopic, but they play a large role in our ecosystem, economy, and food supply. Join Dr. Nicole Millette, assistant professor at VIMS, as she discusses how phytoplankton, or microscopic plants, and other environmental conditions impact the number of striped bass in the upper Chesapeake Bay each year.

Designed for an adult audience, After Hours lectures are held in person on the Gloucester Point campus and as a live-streamed webinar. Lectures are free, but registration is required. Register now!
