Our guest for the May 27 show is Dr. Peter Moyle of the Center for Watershed Sciences and Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at the University of California, Davis. Dr. Moyle has been studying the ecology and conservation of freshwater, anadromous, and estuarine fishes in California for over 42 years. His work has documented the declining status of many native species in California, including salmon and steelhead, along with invasions of alien fishes and the creation of novel aquatic ecosystems throughout the state.
We will ask him to describe what “novel aquatic ecosystems” are, how they differ from natural systems, and what the implications are for water and wildlife management.
