While watching Canada geese trading along the Yellowstone River from his back porch, innovator Bruce Kania tells Ramsey Russell about "the business of inventing." Influenced by a grandmother that taught him to snare rabbits, he grew up archery hunting in Wisconsin, became a young muskie guide, and eventually moved to Montana to chase elk. His Biohaven Floating Island technology is distributed worldwide, cleans water, increases fishery productivity and is even a scalable solution for water quality problems in the Chesapeake Bay, the Gulf of Mexico and world oceans. The invention was inspired while duck hunting in what he refers to as the Red Dog Story. A close encounter with a mountain lion is also recalled. What are some of his other inventions and what key advice does Kania have for would-be inventors? How did a duck hunt inspire this technology? Besides floating duck blinds, what are some of the ways the biohaven floating islands are being used worldwide? And if he uses this technology to form his own country, will there be ducks? Some great inventions have originated in the duck blind, but this one takes it to whole 'nuther level.
