On January the 19th, Dr. George Sedberry of the Gray’s Reef Marine Sanctuary will be presenting a lecture on the “Coral Habitats off Georgia and Adjacent States: Exploration, Fisheries, and Conservation.” During his presentation, Dr. Sedberry will discuss the coral habitats off Georgia, from shallow banks like Gray’s Reef at 60 feet to deep-sea coral formations at depths up to 3,000 feet. Dr. Sedberry will explain how both reef and deep-sea fish are vulnerable to overfishing, show how traditional management tools like quotas and size limits have failed and describe the new measures that have been proposed to restore populations. Dr. Sedberry’s lecture will also be livestreamed at www.learnitlive.com. There will be a wine and cheese reception before the lecture at 6 pm at the Dolphin Reef Bar and then dinner will be served in the Dolphin Reef Main Dining Room at 6:30 pm. The standard Dolphin Reef dinner menu will be offered. Ocean Plaza Resort’s monthly Coastal Ecology Dinner Lectures take place at the Dolphin Reef Oceanfront Restaurant at the same time every month and feature topics affecting coastal ecology. The lectures are given by distinguished experts in the field but presented in terminology everyone can understand.
