  • Our Program:      Following the Fish: a journey into the origins of aquarium species by Mike     Tuccinardi.  From my earliest days in the hobby,     learning how the fish species we keep actually make their way from exotic     places around the world and into our home aquariums has held a special     fascination. Paging through books and magazines to read the mysterious-sounding     names of river systems and export points became a full-fledged obsession,     and I’ve been fortunate enough to make a career of “following the fish”     ever since. This journey has taken me from working at a local fish shop,     then on to a major importer, and finally to the countries, export     facilities, farms, and fishing villages where our aquarium fish originate.     In this talk I’ll invite you along to see the fascinating route aquarium     fish take on 3 continents to eventually wind up in our living rooms, basements,     and fish rooms, and touch on the methods used, the people and cultures     involved, and issues of sustainability that arise.
  • Volunteer     Opportunity: This is a good time for you to step forward if     you have ideas to help us improve our club, meetings and auctions.      Help us make 2018 a better year!
