Introducing John

John Zablocki is a recent graduate in Chemistry and Spanish from the University of Montana. He came to Slovenia this September on a Fulbright grant for his project titled "Characterization and conservation of endangered Balkan trout". His first several months in Slovenia were spent working in the Marble Trout Restoration Program in Western Slovenia with the Tolmin Angling Association (Ribiška družina Tolmin). In January he moved from Tolmin to join our lab and is currently working on a project to possibly identify a remaining pure population of Marble trout that were thought to have gone extinct.

He is obsessed with trout, language, fly fishing, and conservation. He plans to continue working in the Balkans to help protect its unique and fragile salmonid biodiversity.
