Episode Show Notes

Published January 27th, 2020


In this episode John Sherman joins us to sit down with the one and only Peter B. Moyle.

Peter is a Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Department of Wildlife, Fish and Conservation Biology and associate director of the Center for Watershed Sciences at the University of California-Davis.

Considered by many to be the Godfather of fisheries biology in California, Peter has taught many of our state’s top biologists.

His book, Inland Fishes of California is what John Sherman describes as “the bible of freshwater fishes in California”.

We pick Peter’s brain on a number of topics – and he’s already agreed to do it again, so expect more!
