Yes it does. What a wrong message to associate with NANFA, or to release at
all. Who is the author and who is the biologist who suposedly said that
anyway? There are millions of rainbow darters in Ohio. In some of the
little streams where I used to hang out I could kick up hundreds easily in
just a few riffles. And really-- forget about rainbow darters! How many
aquarists keep native fish anyway, compared to stream degradation and
development and pollution!?
