Today's speaker is Tom Calvanese.
Tom Calvanese is the Station Manager for OSU's Port Orford Field Station. Tom's sense of place for Redfish Rocks started during his time as a commercial urchin diver. Despite the area now being off limits to urchin harvest and fishing,
Calvanese never left the waters that became Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve. Join us as we talk with the urchin diver — turned fisheries scientist — turned research field station manager and explore his knowledge of the reserve, how he came to know these waters, and his continued connections with this place.
Tom Calvanese has been magnetized to the 2.7 square-mile area of Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve for almost a decade of his life. During this time, and within this place, he has performed a variety of roles that have led to his current position as field station manager. While these roles may appear polarized from the surface, looking deeper, they are all connected.
