Chris Proulx from www.borealisproductions.com recently made a documentary on the Brook Trout Restoration project on Tunnel Brook Road in New Hampshire. Chris and I (Clay) went to check out the progress by having a very scientific fishing adventure. In this special episode we take you along with us to hear for yourself if the Tunnel Brook Road Brook Trout experiment has worked.

From NANFA DO Bullheads produce Venom? Bullheads are probably best known for the sting that can result from careless handling. That "sting" is actually a sharp cut from contacting the sharp edges of the dorsal and pectoral fins. Jim Congdon, DNR fisheries manager in Horicon, says the fins are a defense mechanism the bullheads use to prosper in lakes and waterways throughout the state. "Predators learn to avoid a sharp-finned meal," he notes. If you, like me, have had the unfortunate experience of swooping your hand into a mass of bullhead fry roaming near a boat landing, you understand how painful those sharp little fins can be. A bullhead "sting," is more painful than that of a bee, and within minutes swelling can occur.The pain can last for a week or more. Congdon explained that bullhead fry have small glands near their side fins which produce a poison that can make getting "finned" by even half-inch fry very painful. These poison glands are common throughout the catfish family. Not to worry though – the poison is not life threatening and the pain can be dulled by dabbing the wound lightly with household ammonia. Don't dab gashes or larger open cuts. Recently, Jeremy Wright, a graduate student in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan, determined that there are at least 1,250 and possibly more than 1,600 species of venomous catfish in the world, including the yellow bullhead, brown bullhead, channel catfish, blue catfish, stonecat, slender madtom, and white catfish. All madtoms except the Orangefin, which is a threatened species from Virginia and North Carolina, are venomous.

I love other podcast Nerds and don’t forget September 30th is International Podcast Day Clay: So That’s it you’ve listened to a bunch of Fish Nerds when you should have been fishing! Liam: We would love to thank our Families for supporting while we podcast, go on fishing quests and do silly things that nerds do. Clay: Special thanks to the gang at Podcast MIDATLANTIC, North Country Angler.com and Hill Country Guide Service my kid Sammy (sorry I stuck ya) and Liam from https://backwoods-graphics.com/
We recorded live at Mid Atlantic Podcast Conference Podcast Mid Atlantic Super Joe Pardo from the Dreamers Podcast I am hanging out with loads of podcast Nerds which is good because September 30th is international podcast day. So I am walking around asking Podcasters what their show is and asking them the impossible science question, what is a fish?
