Alexander Williamson: Our Historical, Biological and Cultural Connection with Fish

Tuesday, February 14, 2023

Alex Williamson graduated with a dual major in anthropology and history from Western Washington University, and has used these skills to research the history of our hobby, dating all the way back to "ancient times". He has an interest in tracing back facts or communal knowledge in the hobby today to their primary sources.

Alex's presentation combines these experiences, telling a story from our cultural and genetic past, emphasizing the profound relationship humanity has had with fish, from the earliest aquaculture practices around the world, to the dawn of the modern aquarium hobby.
