Rockfish are really cool, but they’re in trouble right now because they’re being overfished. Fortunately, there are some people who are working really hard to help their populations recover.
In fact, rockfish have the Vancouver Aquarium’s Vice-President
of Marine Science, Jeff Marliave, on their side. Jeff and his
assistant, Paul Malcolm, are doing all sorts of projects to help
rockfish. Paul has already spent over 100 hours underwater
studying rockfish. That’s like being in the water for over
four days straight!
To see what Jeff and Paul are up to, check out the latest update from the Howe Sound Research and Conservation Group.
