An Entirely Synthethic Fish
Anders Halverson has done an exhaustive study of the origin of the rainbow trout, it's history and how it has been stocked throughout the world. Listen in to learn about this fish we love so dearly.
The result was the book An Entirely Synthetic Fish: How Rainbow Trout Beguiled America and Overran the
World. From the beginning, Anders’ goal was to write the book in a way that would
engage a broad audience, and in 2010 it won the National Outdoor Book Award and was
a featured item in Outside Magazine’s end of the year issue.
Anders is currently a Research Associate at the University of Colorado’s Center of the American West. He
lives in Boulder with his wife and three sons.
