August 23, 2019

Dave Fox of Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's Marine Program has spent over 30 years characterizing, researching and supporting management of Oregon's nearshore marine resources. He's also avid surfer, growing up surfing Ocean Beach in the 70s and eventually migrating to the Oregon coast to work (and play) in our beloved marine environment. From his early days surfing and researching the ocean to his present role at ODFW and constant presence in the lineup, Dave's got some stories. From advancing technologies to that time Greenpeace's Rainbow Warrior commandeered their research vessel in a political act to stop seabed mining off the southern Oregon coast, this episode captures some highlights stories from his over 30 years of professional and personal experiences.
