FN West takes us on a specimen collection trip on Suisun Marsh with the UC Davis fisheries crew. The trip was made extra special when fish nerd celebrity Dr. Peter Moyle joined the crew. Dr. Moyle is Distinguished Professor Emeritus and associate director of the Center for Watershed Sciences at UC Davis. He literally wrote the book on California fishes (Inland Fishes of California). He also wrote Dave’s college ichthyology text book 25 years ago! Dave and Clay wrap up the show with “Fish in the News” that features less toxic fish, pucker gloves and an endangered New England river.
Funding for this fishing podcast is provided by our growing list of supporters on Patreon – the crowdfunding site for artists and creators.
