BBC Radio 4 Documentary on ‘Unnatural Selection’

An interview with Dr. Kinnison is included in the newFish in bins at Billingsgate Fish Market BBC Radio 4 documentary ‘Unnatural Selection’ with host Dr. Adam Hart.  Mike talks about how harvest drives faster trait changes in wild populations than in more natural contexts and highlights some neat research by David Philipp’s and Jason Vokoun’s labs on evolution of reduced aggressiveness in bass due to catch-and-release fishing. The bass studies show how fish don’t even need to be truly ‘harvested’ to generate Darwinian fisheries effects.
