Gulf Coast Research Lab receives check from local conservation chapter | Schools
The Bay St. Louis chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association will present a check for $2,500 to The University of Southern Mississippi’s Gulf Coast Research Laboratory on May 5 at the Garfield Ladner Memorial Pier in Waveland.
Representatives from both GCRL and the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources will be in attendance to receive the donation. The money will be used for general equipment and supplies that support the rearing, tagging, releasing and post-release monitoring of spotted Sea trout.
The Pilot Stocking program, a partnership between GCRL and the DMR, tests the effectiveness of using hatchery-raised fish to enhance Mississippi’s Sea trout population. The spotted Sea trout, Cynoscion nebulosus, known locally as speckled trout, is one of Mississippi’s chief sport fishes.
