Re: NFC: Fairy Shrimp

-> Klaus,

-> Do you know a site where fairy shrimp can be observed - I mean, in the
-> wild, not on the net - well, maybe _in_ the net...?  :)

Years ago, Hermann Jesse used to show up with fairy shrimp at his fish
store in the early spring.  He tried for years to culture them but never
really succeeded.  I will see if I can reach him to see if he will
divulge some sites.  You might try emailing that guy at the university,
or getting a copy of the papers published in the 40,50 and 60's.

In any case let me know if you find anything and I will do the same for
you.  I know of only one vernal pool in all of Hamilton County and I
have never seen fairy shrimp there.
