Maps & Directions

The Port Royal Sound is a unique estuary with a large biodiversity.  One of the main families of fish found in the sound known as drums is the family sciaenidae.  This family includes black and red drums, spotted sea trout, and Atlantic croaker to name a few.  These fish have thrived in the murky nutrient waters of the lowcountry due to their unique ability to locate each other using sound. This talk by Christopher Kehrer, naturalist and education coordinator at the Port Royal Sound Foundation Maritime Center,  will look at underwater acoustics, why fish vocalize and what stresses can affect fish reproduction.

Cost is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223
