Free Presentation On Goldfish by Allen Fertuna Sponsored by GSAS Seattle (Queen Anne)

The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (GSAS) is pleased to sponsor a free lecture by Allen Fertuna on goldfish varieties, basic care techniques, and some exciting upcoming news about the species. Allen is well known in the Goldfish community and has been been raising fish for over 30 years, starting off at the age of 5 selling livebearers to the local pet stores. He had the thrill of having his first koi in an outdoor kiddie pool, and the horror of watching them get eaten by a garter snake the next day. Currently he raises, shows, and breeds award-winning Koi and goldfish. Allen is part of a few breeding programs trying to preserve the last of some varieties of goldfish. He is a founder of N.A.V.A (North American Veiltail Association), and a member of the American Goldfish Association, Northwest Koi and Goldfish Club, and the American Ranchu Society. This will be Allen's first visit to GSAS so let's make him feel welcome!

The lecture will be next Tuesday night (Tuesday, January 10th, 2012) at 7:30PM at Seattle Pacific University; Otto Miller Hall; Room 109; West Nickerson Street and 3rd Avenue West

Doors will open around 7:10PM; the meeting will start at 7:30PM

The lecture will be followed by a short auction
