This post comes from intern Lauren Giglio of the Marine Fish Stress and Health Program and features work on discard mortality in Gulf of Maine Atlantic cod.
Thanks to all of you who have been following the progress of the Aquarium’s Atlantic cod discard mortality project; we have really enjoyed blogging about our efforts to help preserve Atlantic cod here in our local waters.
With our cod posts coming to a close (for now), we thought we’d do something a little different for our final entry. We are excited to invite you to explore the infographic below, which recaps our mission to improve the survival rate of discarded undersized cod, provides a visual guide to our field methods, and shares our promising progress and accomplishments thus far.
