NANFA-- Goldstein article in AFM and a Request for specimens

I read Bob Goldstein article on coolwater aquarium fish (U.S. natives)
in the most recent issue of Aquarium Fish Magazine and was especially
intrigued by the suggestion to put an air pump in a dorm fridge and cool
the air that goes into an aquarium instead of running the water through
the fridge and cooling it directly, as has been the standard use of dorm
fridges for aquarium cooling purposes.

What I'd like to know, though, is who the heck are these "commerical
suppliers" of coolwater U.S. marine natives that he mentions toward the
end of the article? I have looked for them, repeatedly, and have sure as
heck never found any.

Does anyone else know of any such commercial suppliers? Know
Goldstein's email address? Live on the Atlantic and want to become a
"private" supplier? (Actually, I'm _likely_ [never say never] currently
precluded from setting up something like this because I don't really
want to have to move more than one aquarium home from college when
summer comes; I'd still like to hear from people anyway, though.)
