URI offers trawling trip aboard 49-foot vessel

The University of Rhode Island Fisheries Center and the Rhode Island Sea Grant will sponsor two trips aboard Cap’n Bert, a 49-foot URI research vessel. The boat will leave from Wickford Shipyard at 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1.

The educational trawling trip will allow participants to learn about fishing gear and its selectivity, and how to measure and handle local species of fish in Narragansett Bay.

Each child must be accompanied by an adult. No open-toed shoes. The cost is $45 and pre-registration is required.

For more information or to register, call Tracy Kennedy at 874-6800.
