Capelin Spawning at Middle Cove and Bellevue Beaches

Capelin will soon be rolling on our local beaches. Dr. Craig Purchase (MUN Biology) will give beach side Q&A information sessions on capelin reproduction and other aspects of their biology during the spawning season. We don’t know the actual dates and times at present but we will let you know when Craig will be at Middle Cove and/or Bellevue beaches.
