Welcome to Striped Bass Magic – Newsletter #1 – June 2019 | Striped Bass Magic

The Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, MA has developed an ecosystem-based website, stripedbassmagic.org, as part of its outreach activities. 

The striped bass initiative, geared for middle and high school students, has involved 218 individuals since 2015 with a progressive increase in the number of students conducting research projects.  Many of these projects have resulted in the development of lesson plans that have been placed on the striped bass website (stripedbassmagic.org). Join us in the striped bass adventure!

Fish Ecology Program for Middle/High School Students Thrives with Renewed Support

Each spring, striped bass begin a 600+ mile migration from as far south as coastal North Carolina to Cape Cod and further north. As the striped bass arrive in Woods Hole in early May, their coastal ecosystem comes to life as many migrating predator and prey species join resident members of a complex food web. Just as abruptly in the fall, migrating species that form the backbone of a summer community reverse direction and head south.
