LYCEUM: HOMEWARD BOUND – ATLANTIC SALMON MIGRATIONS
March 8 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
David Minkoff will talk about the basics of Atlantic salmon migrations and discuss some of the possible mechanisms of these remarkable journeys, including the roles of olfaction (sense of smell), the geomagnetic field, and life stages during which juvenile fish learn to become expert navigators.
A fish biologist with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Dave’s past work centered on applied research in salmonid imprinting and homing, and currently is focused on fish passage and stream connectivity in the Lake Champlain basin.
