In 2019, a team of fisheries biologists from VIMS, led by Professor Mary Fabrizio, traveled to Nepal to study the country's freshwater fishes. Their goal was to understand how national parks - primarily designed to protect large land animals - may also protect fish habitats and diversity. Along the way they learned a great deal about the rewards and challenges associated with conducting international research. Join us as Professor Fabrizio provides a first-hand account of the expedition — from extreme heat to wild rhinoceros encounters — and what they hope to discover with the information they gathered.
