This week I chat with an old friend of mine, Jeff Kopaska. Jeff is a biometrician with the Iowa DNR Fisheries Division and has had his hand in a number of interesting projects that are helping biologists and anglers alike in Iowa. He is also very involved with the American Fisheries Society and is currently the president-elect of the North Central Division and a member of the membership committee, among other assignments. We discuss some of his view about the current state of the society and where he thinks we are headed in the future. We also discuss a neat story about how Jeff had worked with others in Iowa to restore and preserve a handful of original Maynard Reece paintings that were used to make various prints, like the one used as this episodes image. Enjoy!
Main Point: When you see an opportunity, take it!
