February 6th SDA Club Meeting

February 6th Club Meeting

San Diego Anglers are proud to Present:

Noah Ben-Aderet Ph.D

I am a San Diego native and life-long fisherman. I’m currently a National Research Council post-doctoral fellow in the Fisheries Resources Division at NOAA – Southwest Fisheries Science Center in La Jolla. My research is focused on trying to use larval rockfish to better understand the effects of oceanographic variability on spawning success and maternal health of several southern California rockfish species. Prior to starting at NOAA, I was a 2017 Knauss-Seagrant Legislative Fellow with US Senator Ron Wyden (OR) and completed my Ph.D. at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2017 studying the biology and movement patterns of yellowtail in the Southern California Bight.

An evening you won’t want to miss!

The meeting will be in the 5th Floor Ballroom

Doors open at 6:00pm Meeting starts at 7:00pm
