Cornell University is offering a free one-hour online course on “Saving Our Freshwater Fish” this Wednesday, August 5 at 1 pm EST.
The course intends to cover the following subjects:
- How the climate crisis is affecting some of our most popular freshwater fish species, such as the brook trout in the Adirondack lakes
- How mercury pollution is impacting the world’s freshwater fisheries
- An introduction to aquaculture and the effect its global expansion has on the fish that live in our lakes, rivers, and streams
In describing their course, the University writes, “Mankind’s outsized impact on our natural environment can be witnessed on land, in the air, and throughout waterways. As evident in lakes, rivers, and streams worldwide, our actions have made life more difficult and harrowing for freshwater fish.
Whether it’s the impact of the climate crisis, toxic pollution, or the rapidly expanding aquaculture business, the choices we make have significant, and often severe, consequences for freshwater fish. Do we still have time to change course and save them?
Join them on Wednesday, August 5 at 1pm ET for Saving Our Freshwater Fish: Climate Change, Pollution, and Aquaculture, a live webcast with Cornell CALS faculty Pete McIntyre.
