Seventh Generation Supper: The Changing Food Web of Puget Sound and What it Means for Salmon
Saturday, June 27
Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.

Those icons are fed by an abundance of small forage fish, who are in turn fueled by a rich community of tiny plankton. But that food web is changing as key forage fish are declining and jellyfish are booming. Why is this happening, what does it mean for the species we value the most, and what can we do about it?
