After an administrative and logistical delay, the Winter 2001 issue of American
Currents was mailed to all NANFA members last Wednesday. Since AC is mailed bulk
rate, it can take a month (sometimes even longer) to lope its way through the
U.S. Mule and into your mailbox. And since we are using a new mailing house for
the first time, I have a favor to ask: Please let me when your copy arrives.
(Please don't e-mail this list; a simple note to me at will
suffice. Thanks for your cooperation.)

Here's what's on tap in this expanded 44-page issue:

* a report on the mountain mullet and other Mexican natives from John Lyons
* Ray Wolff's amazing gar pond
* a dispatch from the 2000 NANFA Convention by some bonehead named Scharpf
* thoughts on ethical collecting by Cleveland Metroparks Zoo aquarist Nick
* J.R. Shute on spawning the pygmy madtom
* addenda to Bob Goldstein's new book, American Aquarium Fishes
* information on NANFA's Gerald C. Corcoran Education Grant
* new species: the Blue Ridge sculpin, Cottus caeruleomentum
* a collecting gear primer
* and more!

If you're not a NANFA member and want to get a copy, simply blip me an e-mail
and I'll save a copy for you. Then send $20, payable to NANFA, to this address:
1107 Argonne Drive, Baltimore, MD 21218.

Thanks muchly,

Christopher Scharpf
