Re: [Killietalk] ending fish
Mike Reid's class and activities were a real inspiration for me. Following the first emails I saw on the trading list and killietalk, I decided to set a project in my area. From an fishkeeper perspective, the experience was truly rewarding. The look in the kids' eyes spoke for themselves when they discovered their first eggs and even more when they eyed up. The many questions on fishkeeping proved their interest and hopefully will make of them a fishkeeper-to-come.
I am a little sad to see the activities coming to an end. I really hope someone will take over the activities.
