Episode 16 - Working with 4500 salmon - with Andrew House


Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast!

Our guest this week is Andrew House, who is a PhD student in Wildlife Biology at the University of Helsinki, Finland. He works with a large sample of Atlantic Salmon and studies the fat composition in these fish during their early development (from the stage of embryo up to 2.5 years into their life!).

...and, of course, it wouldn't be an episode of the TSB podcast without a science anecdote. This time we talk about the medaka fish, the little japanese fish that went to space!

This is the last episode for Season 1 of TSB Podcast, see you after the summer break for Season 2!
