Catching snakes, snails, and fish in Arrow Traps in Cambodia’s Tonle Sap lake. Elizabeth Everest, a Fulbright Scholar, introduces us to research being conducted on one of the most productive freshwater systems in the world.
We found some fun fish names and we depicted them in art. Let’s see if you can determine the name!
For nearly a century, Duane Raver has inspired generations of scientists, artists, and anglers with his illustrations.
For millennia, Indigenous Peoples managed fish and fisheries sustainably. So, how do we create room for Indigenous ways of knowing and Indigenous ways of being to create a more holistic and comprehensive approach for sustainably managing fish populations?
Learn as much as you can from the people you rely on the most. The information that they carry with them are things that cannot be found in books or data sets or lectures.

Inclusivity and equity are more than buzzwords, and the field of fisheries conservation needs representation from all backgrounds in order to maximize its success. @sasha_piranha
As a scientist, it is imperative that you explore and practice communicating your science to a broad audience — if you want your science to matter.
This workshop is designed to help you with #SciComm, whether you are starting your first research project, finishing up your second post-doc, or just getting your feet wet in the natural resources workforce.
Saving Sandfish: Unless bold conservation action is taken now, scientists studying Sandfish are worried the fish will go extinct in less than 10 years.
Developments in technology have been a game changer for wildlife and fisheries research, conservation, and management. Specifically, advances in the utility and accessibility of unmanned aerial systems (drones) have made great strides in data collection.
Audio broadcasts, be it radio or podcasts, are a great means for communicating insider tips about fishing and fisheries science to anglers.
Together we can make sure that stories of amazing migratory freshwater species are being told, through newspapers, social media and television. Together we can make sure that policymakers see the urgency AND the potential of all the positive energy of people who are ready to restore.
