Program 1 (20 min): Brian Avila, Colorado State University Ph.D Student (Recipient of CCTU’s Steve Bailey Memorial Research Fellowship) – Survival of Rainbow Trout Fry in the Wild: A Comparison of Two Whirling Disease Resistant Strains
Brian Avila is a Ph.D student in Fisheries Biology at the Warner School of Natural Resources at CSU and part of the Colorado Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. He is also the 2016/17 recipient of CCTU’s Steve Bailey Memorial Scholarship. Brian is a native Coloradoan and an avid fly fisherman. After earning an undergraduate physics degree at CSU he found himself working for Colorado Parks and Wildlife. He was using his electronics background to help a Ph.D. candidate tagging fish with transponders. The work was so fascinating, he decided to earn a Master’s degree in fish biology, and is currently working toward his Ph.D. Brian will make a presentation of his Master’s thesis, “Survival of Rainbow Trout Fry in the Wild: A Comparison of Two Whirling Disease Resistant Strains”.
