Igor I. Solar

Digital Journalist based in Valparaíso, Chile. Joined on Feb 22, 2010
Expertise in Environment & green living, Ethnic cultures, Travel, Science & space, Music



I am a marine biologist and a news addict. I read for pleasure and write for satisfaction. I have published many scientific and technical papers on fish reproductive physiology, salmon genetics and biotechnology in international journals. I have written or co-authored several book chapters on fisheries and aquaculture. Additionally, I have published articles (English and Spanish) on popular science, arts, history, travel, economy and political subjects in local newspapers and community publications in Canada and Chile.
