G'day folks

This email list hates me I think.  I've not seen this one come back from 
the list and it hasn't bounced back to me so I don't know where it is.  I

only posted it 10 days ago.....seems to be an ongoing battle I have 
emailing to nanfa at aquaria_net for some reason.  Every other computer 
seems to like me, or at least tolerate me ..... :-)

Just thought I'd fill youse in on some of my activities over the Xmas 
break.  I had two trips to Ash Meadows (on my way to and from the Bay 
Area, CA), and spent almost 5 days there mostly trapping exotics.  Mike 
Baltzly, another AZ NANFA member joined me for a couple of days.  We 
mostly trapped three springs, and dipnetted a couple of others.  Overall 
over 8,500 exotics were removed (two of the springs trapped are the worst

in Ash Meadows for exotics).  The two worst were (mostly for Chris 
Scharpf's benefit),

Longstreet Spring
bullfrogs	4046
crayfish	329
damnbusia	294
mollies		186 (mollies don't trap very well)

Bradford Spring
crayfish	2279
damnbusia	537
bullfrogs	3

Jackrabbit and Rogers springs were also sampled intensively, though only 
relatively few exotics were removed as they had been collected heavily 
for some time previous.

Next major conservation trip will be to the Moapa River near Glendale 
NV.  The Moapa River is springfed and used to be a tributary to the 
Virgin River, it now flows into Lake Mead.  It will be during March 
19-21.  More details will come soon, everyone is welcome to attend.
