Expiscor: v. /ek.spi.skɔːr/ – The latin word expiscor means to fish out, to find out, or to discover. It seemed like an appropriate name for this podcast, which will offer my personal reflections on fisheries and aquaculture and how research can help improve their role in improving people’s lives. Aimed at both development professionals and the general listener, each podcast will tackle a current or controversial topic, that I hope will inform listeners and stimulate debate. Please feel free to provide feedback by visiting http://blog.worldfishcenter.org/. There will be about 10 podcasts per year – all of them written by me, narrated by me, and critiqued by one or more colleagues. I hope you enjoy them and perhaps even find them useful.
