Forage fish are key to ocean health and seafood sustainability, but what exactly are they, and where are they found? Join Aquarium Wild Fisheries Specialist, Tess Geers, and Sustainability Fellow, Barton Seaver, for an informational and engaging look at forage fish. Learn about the history of forage fisheries, in the United States and abroad, and their impact on marine ecosystems.
