Anthropology students Christie D’Anna, Mallory Kerwin, Meghan Strong and Sonja Ulrich presented their
research on the cultural drivers behind subsistence fishing in Los Angeles at the annual meeting of
the American Anthropological Association in San Francisco on Nov. 22. Assisting
their professor, Ana Pitchon, the students collected data and interviewed residents of Los Angeles County
who fished locally and consumed their catch, which, according to Pitchon, contains above-EPA levels for toxicity.
