“Historical and Contemporary Fisheries in Barnegat Bay”
Douglas Zemeckis, Ph.D. | County Agent III (Assistant Professor)
Marine Extension Agent for Ocean, Atlantic, and Monmouth Counties

Dr. Douglas Zemeckis grew up spending the summers at the Jersey Shore and fishing recreationally throughout New Jersey and beyond. Doug transformed his passion for the ocean into a career in marine sciences after earning a B.S. in Marine Sciences from Rutgers University and a Ph.D. in Marine Science and Technology from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. He currently works as a County Agent III (Assistant Professor) with Rutgers Cooperative Extension where he focuses on delivering educational programs and conducting research to address issues related to fisheries, aquaculture, and coastal resource management. Doug’s presentation will provide an overview of New Jersey’s fisheries with a focus on Barnegat Bay, including both historical and contemporary finfish and shellfish fisheries. The science and management processes involved with our fisheries will be discussed, as well as the biology of the species commonly targeted.
