On Tuesday, March 12, 2013, the irreverent Dr. Milton Love graced Orcas Island with an in-depth look at some of the fascinating fishes of the Salish Sea. Milton Love is the author of the 672-page book, Certainly More Than You Want to Know About the Fishes of the Pacific Coast, and has published over 90 scientific publications on the fishes of the Pacific Coast. He will discuss highlights from this book and will entertain the audience with amazing facts and stories about fishes.
Dr. Milton Love is a research biologist at the Marine Science Institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He has conducted research on the marine fishes of California for over 40 years. For the past 15 years, using a manned research submersible, Dr. Love has carried out surveys of the fish populations living around natural reefs and oil/gas platforms throughout the southern California Bight.
The 2012/13 Marine Science Lecture Series was presented by The SeaDoc Society and YMCA Camp Orkila. It was been made possible through generous sponsorship by Tom Averna (Deer Harbor Charters), Barbara Bentley and Glenn Prestwich, Barbara Brown, Audrey and Dean Stupke and West Sound Marina.
