CBF Online Watershed Learning (OWL) Premiere: Fish Adaptations

A CBF Webinar

Join CBF’s Education department for an engaging CBF Online Watershed Learning (OWL) program to explore fish adaptations in the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem—the good, the bad, and the ugly! See how different fish dress themselves up according to where they live, who they eat, and who preys upon them.  Learn how to make observations about the placement, size, and shape of fish fins, eyes, and mouth and uncover the reasons behind their scale coloration and pattern. By the end of this webinar, you will not only know why rockfish fins are so sharp but will also learn more about the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams.
