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?
