Film Screening - Fishing for Science: Giant Trevally

Join Gaelin Rosenwaks FR ’06 and the film team for cocktails and a special screening of her latest film, Fishing for Science: Giant Trevally. A Q&A with the filmmakers and an update from the scientist will follow the screening.

Fishing for Science: Giant Trevally (directed by Gaelin Rosenwaks) follows the highs and lows of an expedition of marine scientists as they travel to the Seychelles, off Madagascar, to study an important species of fish called the Giant Trevally (GT), a fish revered by many cultures and prized by sport fishermen around the globe. Little is known about the interconnectivity of populations of this important species, which can be found throughout coastal waters of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Jessica Glass, from Yale University, is working to understand this connectivity through genetic analyses of fish sampled throughout their range. To help her accomplish this goal, fellow scientist and angler, Gaelin Rosenwaks, traveled to the Seychelles with Jessica to catch and sample GTs in the waters surrounding the inner Granitic Islands, where fish and samples are scarce. It’s fishing for science!
