Dear Mr. Rice:
Introducing; Richard C. Smith.  I am a fisheries biologist/zookeeper.  I
in the Aviculture Department at SeaWorld.  I was a member of NANFA in the

late 1970s and early 1980s.  I have collected native fish as a hobbyist
professional.  It has been a few years since I have collected in Florida
I am unfamiliar with any new regulations.  I have a freshwater license
have read the very vaige bait regulations.
My friend and fellow member of the Greater Orlando Aquarium Society, Sam
I would like to give a talk about native fish collecting and care at our 
February 10, 2002, meeting.  I am good at taxonomy and identification. 
collecting technique in the past has been with seine, dipnet, and raking 
aquatic vegetation onto the bank.  I have never collected in or around 
Orlando.  We would like to give a talk and then do some brief collecting
those interested.  Do you have any suggestions.  I'd like to share 
information about NFC and NANFA. Can a society join? Please send advice. 

Also, GOAS is always looking for speakers.  Do you or others give talks? 
Thank you,
Richard C. Smith               407-850-2569
