Labside Chats

A Conversation with a Scientist

Thursday, May 13, 2021

11:00 AM PDT

Stephanie Brodie, Ph.D.

Submit your questions in advance HERE.

Tune in for the next Labside Chat with Stephanie Brodie, project scientist at UC Santa Cruz and researcher with the Fisheries Collaborative Program, on Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 11:00 AM PDT. Learn why scientists track marine predators in the ocean and how this helps protect endangered species such as whales and sea turtles.

Join the conversation! Submit your questions in advance for Stephanie, then watch the conversation to hear the answers during the live chat. Help us put together questions such as:

  • How are migratory species defined, and how do we understand where they live in the ocean?
  • What is bycatch, and how are management tools used to reduce its impact?
  • How do marine predators respond to environmental change?

We want your questions! Submit your questions in advance HERE.

Livestream


This Labside Chat is sponsored by the UCSC Fisheries Collaborative Program in partnership with the NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center.

The Fisheries Collaborative Program (FCP) at UC Santa Cruz is dedicated to advancing the science of fisheries ecology, fisheries resource management, and environmental research as related to marine and freshwater species and their habitats. As the largest organized research unit within the Institute of Marine Sciences, FCP is home to more than 140 researchers. FCP fosters collaborations between scientists at the NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center, and faculty, researchers, and graduate students at UC Santa Cruz. Through fieldwork, laboratory experiments, and computational modeling, FCP conducts comprehensive studies with global impact on the conservation of threatened and endangered species, domestic and international fisheries management, and the understanding of climate change effects on marine and freshwater ecosystems. FCP is co-located with the NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center on the UCSC Coastal Science Campus, with satellite research groups located in Monterey and La Jolla, CA.


Labside Chats are for everyone interested in science. Join us on the second and fourth Thursday of every month (except holidays) for a LIVE Q&A discussion from a marine scientist, who provides insight into the wonderful, curious, and sometimes bizarre world of scientific discovery!

  • Time: 11:00 AM PDT (unless otherwise noted)
  • Location: Online; livestreamed on the Seymour Center’s website and YouTube channel
  • Recommended for ages 10 and older.

Labside Chats are offered at no charge. Please support the Seymour Center by becoming a member or making a donation today. Thank you sincerely!
