This exhibition is part of the second instalment of the Community Remembrance Project
Recent M.Sc grad Rachael Hornsby will talk about her research into the biological impacts of Black Bass competitive fishing tournaments on large lake systems. Rachael used the large number of fish captured at these tournaments to help determine population sizes, survival rates and densities of local populations. In addition she assessed whether displaced fish return to original capture sites. Results are being used to discuss sustainable practices with tournament organizations who participated in the study.
