Jan told us about this book:

>Lawrence, S.G. 1981. Manual for the culture of selected freshwater
>invertebrates. Can. Spec. Publ. Fish. Aquat. Sci. 54: 169 pp.
>This book describes culture and mass culture techniques for ramshorn
>Daphnia (D. magna, D. pulex), brine shrimp, scuds (separate sections for
>Hyalella and Gammarus lacustris), bloodworms (Chironomus), and burrowing
>mayflies (Hexagenia). Chapters are written in a standard format: detailed
>text on life history and ecology and toxicology, and cookbook style
>on collection, isolation, cultivation, and maintenance.

I bought this book from an Internet bookseller. I think it was the only
copy available from online used booksellers. The seller said he had 4 other
orders for it that same day, after having it sit on his shelf for the past 2
years. I imagine those 4 people are reading this now, probably more :-)

Well, I just received it. It's just like Jan described, plus there's a
section on Orconectes crayfish. It's spiral bound and has lots of

Is this something people would want? If I could get permission from the
publisher, would you want to buy a good spiral bound photocopy at cost plus
a small amount for the NANFA general fund? You'd probably be looking at
about $25 including shipping.

Unlike t-shirts, one size fits all and you don't have to wash it.
