Nicholas Dulvy, research chair in marine biodiversity and conservation at Simon Fraser University, will be the guest speaker at the annual general meeting of the Port Moody Ecological Society on Wednesday, Feb. 20.
Dulvy, who is co-chair of an international group dedicated to the conservation of sharks, will describe how the oceans have been placed under threat by the harvesting of fish to feed millions of people and what this portends for the future of all the animals that inhabit these waters.

An update of events at the Noons Creek hatchery will be provided.
Following Dulvy's presentation, guests will be invited to mingle and enjoy light refreshments. For more information, see www.noonscreek.org call the hatchery at 604-469-9106.
