The Eminent Codfish website is a project run by Chris Rillahan
Who Am I?
I am a fisheries biologist who lives in Southeastern Massachusetts with my wife, son and dog. I am probably best described as a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none. Most of the
projects on this website stem from my job managing a research group which works to improve commercial fishing technology. Most of our projects focusing on reducing bycatch and minimizing the
impact to the environment. I have a deep love and reverence for the water. When I am not working at sea, I love to swim, surf, windsurf and dive. My affinity for making things
has also lead me to gardening, beekeeping, home construction and raising a toddler.
There are numerous reasons why I decided to start this site. I have a love for creating things and the DIY/maker movement. This project is my small contribution to the movement.
I can't tell you how many times a quick web search has saved me innumerable hours on a project because someone posted a great tutorial. This is my attempt to give back to
internet community. Additionally, most of these project stem from a problem and while I searched the web looking for solution I frequently found people who were having similar issues.
Instead of keeping the solution on my computer I hope that these small projects may help others who found themselves in similar situations. I further hope that this may facilitate a
conversion about how these programs can be improved.
Thank you for visiting my website. Now go make something!
