This might be something someone in these here parts has on file... I would
like to send a letter to the editor of In-Fisherman about the value of
Bowfin, not only in predator control, but in regards to forage fitness, in
response to a tidbit they put in about Bowfin being "not really allll that
bad" for gamefish.

I have access to it on paper-in-the library... but if it wouldn't be too
much trouble for someone to email me an electronic copy, that would be dandy
:) I can't believe Copeia only goes back to 2000 online... Oh well.

Katula, R. S., and L. M. Page. 1998. Nest association
between a large predator, the bowfin (Amia calva), and its
prey, the golden shiner (Notemigonus crysoleucas). Copeia
1998 (1): 220-221.

It's never too late to have a happy childhood.
