Dear NANFA -

I am a fisheries resources student at the University of Idaho and I would
be interested in corresponding (or speaking) with anyone that you might know
that has knowledge of the spawning habits of Acrocheilus alutaceus. I am
currently working on a management plan for a small reservoir in Northern
Idaho and I am considering introducing the chiselmouth as a forage fish and
possibly as an aid for phytoplankton/macrophyte control. Any information
that your organization might offer would be kindly appreciated.
