Angler group to host shellfish biologist

The next monthly meeting of Puget Sound Anglers-North Olympic Peninsula Chapter kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 21, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave. The guest speaker is Ralph Riccio, a shellfish biologist working with the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe. Riccio will talk about oyster culture in Sequim Bay and will have freshly-shucked Jamestown Seafood oysters to sample.

Riccio is originally from Rhode Island, where he earned his Bachelor’s of Science in marine biology and spent several years working in eel grass restoration. He joined the Peace Corps in 2005 and was stationed in Western Samoa working as an Integrated Coastal Management volunteer. He combined his interest in travel and community development to assist coastal communities with food production and adapting to the effects of climate change. After his return, he earned his a master’s degree in marine affairs from the University of Washington and is now working with Jamestown S’Klallam tribal members to restore Olympia oyster populations.

The evening begins with viewing the raffle prizes and fish stories. A short club business meeting begins at 7 p.m. and includes fishing reports from members, followed by the guest speaker. Also on tap are refreshments, a raffle for fishing gear and a membership drawing. The public is welcome.
