Christopher Solomon of the Cary Institute to Speak about Sustaining Quality Recreational Fisheries
Christopher Solomon, Ph.D., an aquatic ecosystem ecologist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, will speak to the chapter about his research on the challenges and opportunities for sustaining quality recreational fisheries. One really interesting aspect of Dr. Solomon’s research is that he looks at how human culture—governing structures, cultural attitudes—what he calls “FishScapes”—impact fish populations. We so often focus on environmental issues that we forget that people—and their attitudes—have a huge impact on the environment.
Solomon was previously a professor of fish and fisheries ecology at McGill University. He has studied fish and fisheries far and wide, including heritage lake trout in the Adirondacks, armored catfish in the Venezuelan piedmont, Pacific salmon in California, largemouth bass and bluegill sunfish in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, cichlids in Lake Tanganyika, and sturgeon in the Hudson River.
