Location: Kelly Park East

Description


ORCA is studying the transfer of toxins and toxicants from the Indian River Lagoon to humans and animals by testing fish from the lagoon and surrounding waterways.
At this pop-up fish processing citizen science workshop, volunteers will be shown how to properly dissect and prepare a fish to be processed for analyses. Feel free to BYOF -bring your own fish- or process one of ours.
A few things to remember if you are bringing fish to process:
-Keep fish whole and on ice (or keep frozen)
-Make sure it is legal and in season
-Label with date, time caught, and location (GPS or if you don't want to give away your favorite fishing spot, view our county sector maps here: https://www.teamorca.org/citizen-science-data-display.html )
-Fish should be from Indian River Lagoon and connecting waterways.
