:re my article on bowfin in the Feb. 2004 Aquarium Fish Magazine....

I just read it for the first time since writing it (in 1999), and it has an
error. On p. 56 it says that Ray Katula was the first to document nest
association. For some reason, the editor deleted the important qualifying
phrase of that sentence -- that he was the first to document nest
association *among bowfins*. Obviously, nest association among other fishes
has been known for quite some time.

Just thought I'd get that off my chest.
