Seacoast Bounty: Horseshoe Crabs, Bluefin Tuna and Striper Story
All in the Latest Issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal
CONCORD, N.H. – Who doesn't want to be on the beach these days? Take an armchair trip to the shore in the latest issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine. You'll feel the power of that hundred-pound tuna on the line as you go along for the wild ride on a tuna-fishing expedition off New Hampshire's rocky coast.
Also in this issue, explore the world of a coastal species that's been around since the time of dinosaurs. For real! The horseshoe crab has survived for eons, but this ancient arthropod is facing daunting new challenges in the modern age.
Anglers who target striped bass will appreciate the insights offered by Marine Biologist Kevin Sullivan in "School's Out." He explains why anglers are bringing in more keepers these days, but not necessarily encountering the big schools of younger fish that were more common a few years ago.
The Journal is the state’s only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation. In this issue, you'll be fascinated by the unique hydraulic vascular system that powers the tiny sea star. Learn about a new fish ladder on the Lamprey River and a wildlife garden being built in Stratham. As always, enjoy the entertaining adventures of Fish and Game Conservation Officers on the job in Warden's Watch – on the trail of poolside skunks, rambling raccoons and hurricane-stranded motorists.
