Press Release The Native Fish Conservancy (NFC)  St. Paul Minnesota:

The NFC receives a 150 setup equipment Grant from Marineland:

The NFC  a 501c3 non profit agency has received a substantial equipment
grant from Marineland aquarium products to further their Adopt A Tank
Program in schools and Libraries. The Adopt A Tank Program encourages
teachers, community leaders and students to set up a local species tank
for study and display. A local species tank teaches basic aquatic science
, local species id and has proven to be a real catalyst in environmental
education. Participants report a surprising amount of interest in local
species by both the students and the community at large. Through this
grant participants are given free aquarium equipment to facilitate
setting up a tank of local fish . When combined with the efforts of an
NFC mentor , this has proven to be a powerful combination to a successful
local fish species/public display experience.

To learn more about this and other exciting programs contact the NFC at
