Deon Kerr (co-host) dives into an important topic when it comes to equality in fisheries. Financial barriers are real. Financial disparities can be a primary deterrent to entering the fisheries profession. Dr. Brian Sidlauskas, associate professor and curator of fishes at Oregon State University, joins the conversation and brings in examples of how employers and academic faculty can support their employees and students (graduate and undergraduate) to overcome financial barriers.
