Get to know the oldest and most misunderstood fishes in North America - lampreys. Dr. Stewart Reid will explore the biology, diversity, and conservation of these fascinating ancient fishes. We’ll learn how lampreys start out as eyelash-sized larva (ammocoetes), serve as earthworms in our streams to then journey out to sea where they ride fishes and whales along the coast, until they sniff out a good river to spawn and die in. Learn how they are doing, what their challenges are, and what can we do to help them survive.
