Chris Moore will discuss the state of the Bay to include the importance of Atlantic Menhaden in maintaining a viable ecosystem – that includes the management of fish, birds, and other wildlife equities and issues.  We will learn about the recently announced CBF 10 Billion Oyster Partnership and why CBF and other environmental groups push for catch limits that would take into account Atlantic menhaden’s role in the food chain for fish and birds (ecological reference points).  He will also address a full range of issues on challenges to the health of the bay and the importance of ecosystem management.
