But I think I’ve asked a couple of good ones too, and I’ve pursued them and have found the answers personally satisfying, and so far at least [they] have stood the test of scientiﬁc time. You’ve always intrigued me because of your approach to ﬁsh biology, which goes all the way from functional morphology and physiology at a very detailed level to the broader ecological perspective of these phenomena. When did you ﬁrst get into actual studies of ﬁsh vision? I was in Fred Crescitelli’s lab. Even though I didn’t work on vision, I learned all the lore.
Hubbs’s students included Boyd Walker (who taught at UCLA), and among Walker’s students are Bill McFarland and Dick Rosenblatt, who was Bob Warner’s major professor and Maggie McFall-Ngai’s ichthyology professor. At Hawaii, Peter Sale was a graduate student of Bill Gosline, while Phil Lobel had him as an undergraduate advisor. The individuals on these trees not only have shared a tradition of how to do science, including the relevance and importance of ﬁeldwork, but also have a ready-made family of contacts.
I had gone with Norris and Brocato, and we had been collecting ﬁshes around Catalina Island for Marineland. In the evenings we’d come in and anchor in Catalina Harbor, which is a very protected area. While Frank Brocato was cooking dinner (my job was to cook breakfast) I would climb into the crow’s nest to enjoy the setting sun. One evening, I noticed groups of ﬁshes schooling at the surface. They were progressing around the curve of the harbor and heading for the open sea, but they did not proceed in a straight line.
