"Holy Grail Cichlids, Friends, and Other Fish:Two West African Stories"
Our February speaker at the Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (GSAS.org) is Lawrence Kent who will share with us the presentation he made last summer as the keynote speaker at the American Cichlid Association's annual convention -- "Holy Grail Cichlids, Friends, and Other Fish:Two West African Stories."
The presentation will cover his recent trip to the Islamic Republic of Mauritania and other forays into the wild world of Nigeria. He found some interesting fish in both of these strange and rarely visited countries, and not just cichlids but also characins, mormyrids, and catfish. If you like African fish or just funny stories, please come!
Lawrence has been a grateful member of GSAS for 13 years. He has made fish presentations in twenty cities, collected fish in 23 countries, and published two dozen articles in Tropical Fish Hobbyist, Cichlid News, Buntbarsche Bulletin, and very recently the German magazine DATZ. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of Amazonas magazine. Lawrence keeps 27 tanks at home filled with African cichlids, Southeast Asian labyrinths, and self-collected native fish.
The presentation is part of our regular monthly meeting, which is open to the public. The meeting will be on Tuesday, February 11th, 2020 at 7:30 PM at Seattle Pacific University; Otto Miller Hall; Room 109; West Nickerson Street and 3rd Avenue West.
