Morning Troops!

BUEI Talks are screening Ocean Vet Episode 7: Black Grouper on Thursday, May 26th.

Watch Neil anaesthetise these fish and surgically implant acoustic tags before testing a dangerous but less invasive grouper tagging system.
Follow Neil and the team as they explore the deep alien world of the grouper breeding grounds and come face to face with one of the biggest threats to the Atlantic ecosystem, the invasive lionfish! The lecture will start in the Tradewinds Auditorium at 7.30pm on each evening.  Harbourfront are offering a 10% discount (food only) to anyone dining there before or after the event.  Reservations are available from 5pm for the sushi bar and the full menu will be available from 6pm – please mention the lecture when booking to avail of the discount and note that it cannot be combined with any other special offers.  For dinner reservations call 295-4207.
