Stripers Forever members - an update on our Mycobacteriosis Initiative in collaboration with Dr. Wolfgang Vogelbein of the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences: to date we have 55 donors to the program, and have raised $6,140 to research the effects of mycobacteriosis on striped bass in Chesapeake Bay.
Dr. Vogelbein will give an After Hours lecture on February 23, 2012, at 7 PM. titled "Is Mycobacteriosis killing Virginia's striped bass?" Here is alink to register to view the lecture online.
Our understanding is that an email will be sent for users to access the site as a guest on the day of the lecture or sometime shortly before. The lecture will also be posted on the VIMS website to view afterward.
