This week I chat with Dr. Steve Sammons from Auburn University (hopefully those Tigers don't get upset that I said University of Auburn in the episode; War Eagle?) about a little of the work he has had the opportunity to do on Shoal Bass in the Apalachicola River basin. We start with why the southeastern United States is such a biodiversity hot spot before diving in more on the Shoal Bass. Steve is a wealth of information for this species and tells some fun tales of field expeditions including sampling for fish in a whitewater course! Enjoy!
Main Point: Remember the state agencies in your research!
