At the Fisheries Blog, we’re starting a new series of posts, once a month, where we bring back “oldie but goodie” posts from our now extensive archive. Rest assured, these “repeat spawner” posts, smell a whole lot better than that leftover fish you found in the fridge from two weeks ago!
by Bryan Bozeman, guest author I emailed at least 100 professors in my hunt for a grad position…and received less than 20 responses. Half of those were out-of-office emails, several others were ‘thanks-but-no-thanks’, and a few showed actual interest. I was fortunate to have three opportunities, and ended up selecting one that has been an…
We share photos and stories of women who conduct research while simultaneously creating and sustaining brand new human beings. We highlight some of these inspiring scientists to demonstrate that not only is Mom-ing in Science doable, but it is also fun and rewarding!
Pictures and videos detail the removal of migration barriers to Steelhead Trout in the Pacific Northwest.

We paddled the quiet corridor, antenna rotating side to side in front of me as…
If these rules are followed, your impact will grow, interest in your work will increase and so will your network of like-minded people. Fishery Scientists can take on this responsibility and run with it, and the time is now.
We take a look at a very particular occurrence on one of Columbus’ return trips to the Western Hemisphere where he encountered indigenous people using, perhaps, one of the most interesting methods ever employed to catch fish.
