Re: Species Maintenance/an alternative plan
In a sense the AKA Species Maintenance Committee Report will be nearly
identical to what you propose. The initial report will be in paper format
as a 13th "BNL." and be out sometime this summer. At the same time it is
released, it will be placed on the AKA Website and from there I will update
it it constantly. The idea that people can send in a report is also part of
that plan - simply by emailing me from the AKA Website and then I can post
The committee that seems to be forming will work on another format - one
which may help to establish some of the rarer fish in the hobby. Since we
are in the formative stages of creating this program - I can't really guess
where it will end up or how much will be accomplished, but I believe we have
the start of a very good group of people.
Anyone interested in participating in this discussion group and becoming
involved in Species Maintenance can contact me directly at
tgrady at twcny_rr.com Beginning Saturday, we will begin using a separate
email list to discuss the ideas and format the study group will take and go
from there. I intend to post our progress in the BNL and the Killie Talk
Mail List. The group is not private by any means - but since the only topic
will be Species Maintenance - I feel it should operate separate from the
regular discussion list.

> I have another idea on how to do it and perhaps those smarter than I
can refine it. Have a species maintenance person designated (ideally with a
web site). If you lose a species and you think the fish is rare you notify
the maintenance person. Anonymously if you wish. If the maintenance person
thinks the fish is rare, he posts it on the website as rare. Website is
updated every couple of weeks. He could also notify the affiliate clubs and
the BNL. If anyone has the fish they then can concentrate on breeding it and
could then supply the fish to the N&RSC or maintenance committee.
> This strategy works on the guilt complex..".Oh no I lost the fish--Are
they still in the hobby??" And it works on the greed strategy...if a
hobbyist knows that N&RSC will list a fish and that there is a demand for
the fish, he will do his best to raise some up---"Hey I know there is a
market for these things".

because we think other people are keeping them and we neglect our own.
