VIRTUAL PANEL DISCUSSION
Women in Fisheries Science – Then and Now. Five women will share their experiences working in the field of fisheries science. Panelists include pioneering scientists Linda Depres (the first female chief scientist on bottom trawl surveys at NOAA), Pat Gerrior (New Bedford’s first female port director) and three current graduate students from SMAST: Alison Frey, Aubrey Ellertson Church, and Patricia Perez. All of these women are featured in the Center’s Women’s Work exhibit. The program will be presented via ZOOM. Click the link to join the meeting or visit: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85349432813.
