NANFA-- Fla collecting

Thu, 2 Dec 1999 13:40:17 -0500

Just got back from a trip to Ft. Myers, Fl. and while I was there I scooped
a couple of specimens from the Caloosahatchee River (at a marina where the
boats put in). Found a small Flagfish and several what I think are guppies.
As an amateur, I have to ask: "Is that where guppies come from?"

I used the "2 liter bottle" technique that was posted on thread a while back
to take them home on the airplane and it worked great...

I threw back Pupfish and a Flounder (both about 1 in. long) because I wasn't
sure what they were at the time (well, the Pupfish anyway), in an effort to
be ethical in collecting. I'm pretty sure that a Flounder has to be bigger
than 1" to be a keeper.

Anyway they're home and doing great..
