The Don Quixote of Fish Biologists | Dave Cannon | #192 HR

My friend Dave Cannon, a fish biologist, recounting his experiences and sharing his views on various environmental issues. As a child, his interest in nature was sparked by fishing and catching snakes, which later led him to a career in fish biology.

He has worked in various capacities, including in Idaho dealing with endangered salmon and steelhead, and facing abuse from ranchers and miners. In this section, he discusses the challenges that biologists face in protecting natural habitats and preserving threatened species. Later in the section, Cannon talks about his efforts to create a movie about ADD and its causes.

He notes that he believes ADD is a dysfunction that needs rehabilitation, and that the structures of the human mind remain unchanged, leading to the same evils being recreated. He also discusses Hollywood’s desire for a one sentence logline to pitch the movie and mentions that his movie may follow a non-traditional, scattered format like a Robert Altman film. In this part of the transcript excerpt, the speaker also discusses his vision to make a full-length feature film about a scientist known as the Donkey, a biologist who is passionate about making a difference by reaching the masses in a unique way.

Cannon is facing challenges in finding the right people who are passionate about the environment and mental illness, and who can help him create a compelling story about psychology and sustainability. Throughout this section, Cannon touches on various environmental issues, including loss of biodiversity, bycatch fishing, and climate change. He also discusses the interconnected nature of these crises and the urgent need for action. Additionally, he talks about the term “soul nostalgia,” a type of environmental grief loss experienced by those who have lost their home or their immediate or environmental surroundings
