Please listen to the “Financial Disparity in Fisheries Science” podcast at this link: https://diversity.fisheries.org/podcast-2/ .
If you have additional time, skim this article too https://academic.oup.com/bioscience/article/66/7/584/2463185 .
We will discuss any aspects of either resource that stood out to participants.
As a starting point for discussion: The podcast brings up barriers to entering academia and fisheries science that are related to people not understanding academic culture. Can you think of how such barriers might be at play in your own organization or in fisheries science in general? What concepts of “fisheries culture” might we take for granted that might not actually be widely understood and thus serve as a barrier to entering this field?
