The first spawning report has been received in the NANFA Breeders Award
Program! Congratulations to Pat Halligan of Freeland Washington for
submitting the inaugural report to the BAP and kicking off this new NANFA
initiative. Program chairman, Bob Muller, reports that Pat sent in five
hand written pages with drawings and diagrams describing the spawning of
the blacknose dace, Rhinichthys atratulus. Pat spawned his fishes in a
series of plastic tubs cascading into one another, simulating a natural
creek environment. The BAP committee would like to make this and all
subsequent spawning reports available on the internet for hobbyists and
researchers to help increase knowledge of North American Fishes and their
biology. The BAP is currently accepting paper and email reports to Bob
Muller (see address below). An on-line form is in the works to enable
web-based submissions to help streamline the process and keep the info
flowing into the program and out to the public. Check the Fall issue of
American Currents for details of the program and awards and recognition of
breeders who submit reports. Pat H is leading the pack right now. Fish
lovers everywhere are anxious to see who will be the next enterprising soul
to take up the challenge! Reports of past spawns are being accepted.
Award credit will be given if all required fields of the report form can be
completed. All reports, complete or incomplete, will be included in the
database available to all via the web.
