TPW TV–I Love a Mystery

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

This is Passport to Texas

Texas parks and Wildlife TV producer, Ron Kabele, recently completed work on a show set to air this month,
that’s filled with mystery and intrigue.

55—I started off spending a few days with a class at Sea Camp in Galveston, run by Texas A&M University, and it’s a forensics class. There were 12 students in it—all teenage girls.

Okay guys, listen up: Sgt. Brown mentioned yesterday that it’s very important that you know some anatomy when you’re working with forensics.

I looked for a real world application that related to some of the experiments. We have a laboratory in San Marcos that does some pretty cutting edge stuff, and one of the things that they’re working on is a project that was based on how biologists starting finding fish around water treatment plants, but here were no males.

They were finding male fish with eggs in them. When they first discovered this, we really didn’t believe it.

So, when it comes to solving a real world mystery, what better mystery is there than why aren’t there any males in this population?

To find out if they solved the mystery, you’ll have to tune into the show. Check your local listings.

That’s our show… with support from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration program…providing funding habitat conservation and fisheries management in Texas.
