10 MONTH SNOOK UPDATE

Capt Blair Wiggins 10 month visit

In Part 5 of our Project Snook video series, Capt Blair Wiggins checks in with our juvenile spawned snook on their 10 month birthday. Mote Aquaculture Park staff are taking great care of the young fish, and this would be the time to release them into the wild. Unfortunately, government funding and public/private funding has been cut, and Mote Marine does not have enough staff to release this generation into the waters of Tampa Bay. Instead, Nate Brennan PhD and his team will continue to study the fish and try to better prepare future generations for life in the wild.
