So, do we have to choose between the three trips or can we go on more than one trip? I'd like to see deepwater trawling and also
the Mingo Swamp. I've been meaning to visit the Mingo for several years, but, the promises of grilled steak after deepwater
trawling is quite alluring :)

Three collecting (aka sampling) trips are planned and attendees will be allowed to keep and take how any non-listed fish species they want.

> Trip one is a barge trip down the Mississippi River to an island habitat. Fishes will be collected using seines and trawls. We should see some > deepwater fishes not normally seen my recreational collectors. (On the way back, we will grill ribeye steaks and chicken on the > canopy-covered barge.)

> Trip two is a canoe trip to the Black River (Ozarks). (MDOC crews in boats equipped with outboards will both lead and pull up the rear of the > flotilla.) By canoeing, we will gain access to some pristine habitat loaded with fishes!

> Trip three offers a chance to legally collect fishes from a National Wildlife Refuge (Mingo swampy lowland). Again, canoes will provide access > to a difficult-to-reach locale.
