In this special podcast edition your host, George Scocca speaks with Chris Paparo, aka the @fishguyphotos, as he displays his knowledge and passion for conservation and his incredible talent at capturing it on film. You will learn more about what we have swimming in our fertile New York waters. His photo’s and film capture the essence of what living on an Island as diverse of beautiful Long Island has to offer.
Born and raised on Long Island (New York), Chris Paparo has been exploring the wilds of the Island for over 30 years. He is a wildlife photographer, writer and lecturer who enjoys bringing public awareness to the diverse wildlife that calls the island home. His passion for coastal ecology, fishing and the outdoors led him to obtain a BS in Marine Science from LIU/Southampton and he currently manages the new Marine Sciences Center at the Southampton campus of Stony Brook University.
An award-winning member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America and the New York State Outdoor Writers Association, Paparo is a freelance writer for several fishing and wildlife related publications. Although his work tends to focus on marine life, everything in the natural world is fair game.
