Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.
Remember the 2011 movie Salmon Fishing in the Yemen? Well, this is the story of “tilapia in the Sudan.” Hear how one enterprising fish biologist transformed tilapia into the number one aquaculture species, and why this might be the fish that feeds a hungry world.
