Larval Fish Biology

Fish begin their lives as small planktonic larvae, growing and developing through several unique phases to become the adults we see in the ocean and find on our dinner plates. This course builds an understanding of the early life history of fishes by examining larval fish anatomy and adaptations for survival. You will get hands-on experience observing fish larvae in Hatfield Marine Science Center’s labs, and you will work with your classmates to create a scientific notebook for larval fish identification.  By the end of the course, we hope you will have a better appreciation of the many different forms and functions of Pacific Northwest fish larvae.

‘Seatauqua?’
The Seatauqua (see-TOK-wa) was a series of workshops, lectures and excursions that ran for decades in Newport.   First coordinated by Oregon Sea Grant, the programs encouraged chautauqua-style discussions by all participants about arts, sciences, coastal ecology and more.  In 2014, with the help of Heather Fortner,  the late Maryann Bozza, and others, Oregon Coast Community College and the Hatfield Marine Science Center began the process of reviving Seatauqua, with special classes and workshops.  Other Seatauqua-themed arts and music classes can be found elsewhere in this publication.
