- Date: Thu, 18 Mar 1999 07:16:46 ESTThis is the protocol for getting wild caught exotic and native fish for your Aquarium Society Auction I am Daryl Roche and I run the Exotic Removal Program in South Florida for the Native Fish Conservancy, NFC. I also supply fish, both native and exotic, and plants for aquarium society auctions. Here is how it works..... You send me a copy of your organizations auction rules and regs. and give me a date you would like to recieve the shipment as well as an address. Fish are normally shipped aircargo, approx. $36.00. We split the shipping 50/50. I send the fish to arrive on the appointed day, you will need to rebag for presentation at the auction. When it's over, you send a check, including your half of the shipping, to NFC's treasurer for our cut of the sales. No out of pocket on your end. All the procceeds from our cut on these auctions go to the NFC. This is one of the ERP's functions within the NFC. It serves 2 of our goals at the Native Fish Conservancy, getting the exotics out of the wild in Florida and natives into the tanks of a aquarists hungry for something new and different, which in turn, acts as a vehicle for an appreciation of our little natives. The public is more inclined to care about thier conservation if they have them in their livingrooms. E-mail me with the information and we'll discuss the details and put you on the scheduale. Thanks, Daryl Roche Exotic Removal Program Administrator, NFC Come visit us at http://nativefish.interspeed.net and review our programs like the Exotic Removal Program and Breeders Club, as well as, view over 250 images of native fish of North America and much more.
