Meeting on Friday, June 5, 2015

Our speaker will be Doug Sweet, the superintendent of the London State Fish Hatchery of the Ohio Division of Wildlife. Doug's talk is titled, “Spawning Anguilliform (Eel shaped) Loaches….or Not” about Doug’s personal 40 year quest for their spawning triggers.

It is all about eel shaped loaches, spawning them with and without hormone injections. Doug will also cover some systematics, range, and environmental conditions in the wild, and also the Frank Kirschbaum methods for spawning difficult rainforest species.
