For those outside of the field, studying one genus of fishes seems like a very narrow discipline.  But, for the organizers of the seven international charr symposiums, there was not enough collaboration and information shared even amongst these charr scientists.  So, they decided to hold symposiums every three years to keep apprised of each other’s work. The geneticists can learn from the management biologists, the stock assessment modeler can learn from the morphologist.

I sorta blame restaurants  – from Red Lobster to the Friday fish fries to those honkin’ buffets.

They make fish look so endless. Every day’s a feast, and the shear bounty seems to assure it’ll be that way forever.
