Hello, my name is Kelly McNichols and I'm working on a Masters-in-the University
of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. The focus of my research is on fish host
identification for endangered species of freshwater mussels in Canada.
Currently I collect all of the fish that I test from rivers and lakes around
the Guelph area but I am trying to find out if there are any breeders in Canada
that raise darter species. I found out about NANFA through the Bob Muller at
the Freshwater Mollusc Conservation Society workshop in March. If anyone has
any suggestions as to where I can get native species of darters from a Canadian
breeder I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!!
