Dr. Zeb Hogan is a research biologist at the University of Nevada, Reno and the United Nations Convention on Migratory Species Scientific Councilor for Fish. He has a doctoral degree in ecology, was a visiting Fulbright scholar at the Environmental Risk Assessment Program at Thailand’s Chiang Mai University and has served as a World Wildlife Fund Senior Freshwater Fellow. Zeb also hosts the popular Nat Geo Wild Television series “Monster Fish.” Zeb’s research focuses on migratory fish ecology, fisheries management, and endangered species issues. As a National Geographic Fellow and Explorer, Zeb led a multi-year effort to find, study, and protect the world’s largest freshwater fish. Zeb is currently the Principal Investigator of the USAID-funded Wonders of the Mekong Project. The goal of the Wonders of the Mekong Project is to document and highlight the internationally significant natural and human capital assets of the Mekong, communicate to regional and world audiences the value of these assets in ways that resonate with wide segments of society, and create new models of effective stewardship for Mekong basin ecosystems. Zeb regularly lectures at universities, museums, aquariums, and science centers in the United States and around the world.
Dr. Hogan cannot join us on campus as originally planned so he sent us this 20 minute talk on his work with monster fish to view in the comfort of our homes. Click on the link to view Zeb’s video.
