Join Conservation Connect Host, Louie Ocaranza in our aquatic conservation episode to ask questions and learn about what may be under the surface of our rivers and streams. In the first half, we’ll talk with Matthew Patterson, our freshwater mussel expert at the National Conservation Training Center. Matt will tell us about how these less obvious but important animals play a huge role in the health of aquatic ecosystems. You’ll also learn about the fascinating life cycle of mussels.

In the second half we’ll learn about electrofishing and American eels. Alan Temple, Fisheries Biologist at NCTC and expert on electrofishing will show us how this technology can be used to study and conserve wild fish populations. As always, we welcome student questions via our online chat room.
