Rex Thors is a rising junior at Colby College in Waterville Maine. Rex studies Biology and has a passion for spending time on the water. Rex is interested in pursuing a career in one of these areas: field research, US Fish and Wildlife Services, and aquaculture. Rex wants to work to help protect and ensure the proper management of the beautiful lakes, rivers, ponds, and ocean that we are blessed to have access to here in Maine. In his free time, Rex enjoys fishing, and skiing with his friends. Rex is very excited to work with Erin Peterson and Joseph Zydlewski to tag, track and analyze the movements of the sea lamprey of the Penobscot River. Rex is excited to help their important work and gain valuable experience from tagging the lamprey to communicating results and more.
Rex is a 2021 Undergraduate Intern in Sea-run Fish Research.
