Talks on Tap! Marine Science with Dr. Ben Ruttenberg

It's time for Talks on Tap again, where we sip beer while learning from experts, nerds, and other people-in-the-know! This month's talk is by Cal Poly's marine biology professor Ben Ruttenberg: "From Pismo clams to potential power from wind: Cal Poly and marine conservation on the Central Coast." 

Dr. Ruttenberg will provide a colorful look at ongoing marine conservation projects at Cal Poly. These include the rise, fall, and possible recovery of Pismo clams, the impact of ocean heat waves on local fisheries, how Cal Poly researchers are evaluating the potential benefits and impacts of offshore wind energy, and exciting developments using artificial intelligence to monitor our marine ecosystems.
