As a serious winter storm approaches New England this weekend...we are
getting ready for the March monthly meeting of NANFA New England. This
months meeting will be held in Connecticut. The meeting spot is the
Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection - Marine Headquarters
located at 333 Ferry Rd in Old Lyme CT, right on the Connecticut River.
This location features easy directions, as it is located just under a
mile from RT. 95 (exit 70). Directions are simple, call either of the
contacts below, or visit CT DEP's web-site at:
As promised in our original meetings, our intentions were to spread
meetings around the region to make it convenient for everyone to attend
at least a few meetings each year. We had our first two meetings in
Massachusetts..we now head south to Connecticut. We will be meeting in
the conference center at the DEP Marine HQ, it is the last building in
the complex. I must thank our CT Representative, George Tamburri, for
arranging this one. We were originally planning the meeting in Haddam
CT, but the facility there lacked the space we needed. So George did
some researching and found this location.
We are unsure of the exact topic for this meeting, however we will be
discussing the New England Native Fishes Guidebook that the region plans
to put out. This guide will be similar to the Florida guide done up by
the FL NANFA chapter and the local killie club there. Our guide however,
will encompass all of the six New England states. It will feature
sections on what fishes occur where, what the protected species are,
collecting laws, places to see fish (ie: public aquariums, etc.), pricing
schedules for fishing licenses, list of local NANFA members in each N.E.
state, etc. We would like to put together groups from each state to work
on their section of the book. The main thing will be to meet members
from the CT area that haven't made it up to the MA meetings. Due to it's
location (right off of RT 95) we invite any NANFA members (or other
interested parties) from the Metro NY area to attend. We will be
discussing plans for collecting trips and fish swaps at this meeting.
We hope to see you all there!
