They're looking for contributions, wanted to know if NANFA members would be
willing to get involved, and I said I'd ask. I just thought some members
would see this as a way to get involved in a good cause. Yes, they could
buy a book to see what the fish look like, but Axelrod isn't going to let
them scan his photos. The person who contacted me is Pam Fuller, coauthor
of the book Nonindigenous Fishes Introduced Into Inland Waters of the United
States, which was published by AFS in 1999. Hy, if you or anyone else
doesn't want to help, that's okay! :-) But several members have already
contributed photos and information to their website. It's a site with
significant conservation value, and if you haven't seen it already it's at
