Ned DeLoach will be presenting one of his popular fish behavior talks as part of the Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF) free Fishinar series. Ned’s talk, Speed Dating Fishy Style: How Fish Spawn and When You’re Likely to Catch Them in the Act, will be live online on May 9th at 8pm EDT.

The presentation, which will highlight many of Ned’s unique fish behavior photographs, will be followed by a Q&A session.

REEF’s Fishinars (a.k.a. webinars) are open to divers, snorkelers and devout landlubbers alike. Anyone wanting to learn more about reef fish is welcome.

This is fishy fun in the comfort of your own home. A microphone or webcam is not needed in order to participate.
