--This lecture was postponed from April 28 due to the threat of severe weather--Recent management actions, including a spawning sanctuary and closure of the century-old winter dredge fishery, appear to be helping Chesapeake Bay's blue crab population rebound toward a healthy, sustainable level after decades of decline. Join VIMS professor Rom Lipcius as he explores the science and management actions behind this transition. Lipcius heads the Blue Crab Winter Dredge Survey at VIMS, a unique, long-term research program that provides the key information necessary for assessment and sustainable management of the Bay's blue crab population and fishery.
