“Stripers are one of Maine’s most cherished salt water fish and every season thousands of Maine fishermen look forward to the annual striped bass migration, said Peter Slovinsky, marine geologist at Maine Geological Survey and Friends of Scarborough Marsh (FOSM) board member. “Maine’s marsh systems, like the Scarborough Marsh, play an extremely important role in the striped bass’s migration, providing a habitat for protection and feeding. Join the Friends of Scarborough Marsh’s lecture series guest speaker Zach Whitener of the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (and also a registered Maine guide) to learn more about stripers and the Scarborough Marsh.”
