Anchored Podcast:


Jack Kos is a New Zealand angler who studied law at the University of Canterbury. Since Jack’s teens, he has been fixated on the allure of brown trout in the Southern Hemisphere. This fascination lead him to complete his bachelor’s thesis with a focus on the introduction of brown trout to New Zealand, which led him to a PhD thesis on the fishery and the role it has played over the last century. In this episode of Anchored, Jack and April discuss the man behind New Zealand’s famous brown trout, how he forever changed the ecosystem, and how the species adapted to thrive in its new home.
