Author/ecologist will present 'An Entirely Synthetic Fish'

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — Author and ecologist Anders Halverson will present “An Entirely Synthetic Fish: How Rainbow Trout Beguiled America and Overran the World” on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Byrd Auditorium at the National Conservation Training Center on Shepherd Grade Road.

“An Entirely Synthetic Fish” is the true story of the rainbow trout. Sometimes vilified for its devastating effects on the native fauna, sometimes glorified as the pre-eminent sport fish, the rainbow trout is the repository of more than a century of America’s often contradictory philosophies about the natural world.

Halverson is an award-winning writer with a doctorate in ecology from Yale University. He wrote the book as a research associate at the University of Colorado’s Center of the American West with a grant from the National Science Foundation.

The presentation is free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required.
