Dear Mr. Cooper,
One of the major holdups in the AKA is the lack of the communication that it
has with the general public.
The general public as a rule are in favor of Specie Maint. but the AKA has
never gone about doing something real in way of really setting up breeding
establishments and sought grants to run them.
I also feel the AKA is missing the boat on the fish and egg listings like
mentioned earlier there are those that have the items today that in a month
may change. With eggs that hatch in two weeks or less the AKA does not
understand the average fish person and the time that they may have ava. to
do the work. I work as a painter and some weeks I work 30 hours while others
I work 60 - 70 hours I have no way of predicting what amount of time I will
have next week let alone 6 weeks from now. most of the forty types of fish I
have now are laying eggs and an average pair lays 12- 25 eggs a day. Most of
the time when folks come to visit they take home at least 100 eggs if they
want them I would love to have a way to sell or dispose of them in a timely
manner via the AKA last year I listed free eggs on this list and got a lot
takers. I would love to be able to let eggs of the fish buy the BBS that I
use via the AKA.
