One of NANFA's programs is the following, a grants program to support
aquatic conservation. This is our fourth year. Hopefully everyone read in
the latest American Currents about Jean Krejca's work in Mexico; Jean was
our first winner. Any of you who feel truly juiced up after the latest list
discussion about the status of Pteronotropis species in North America can
apply for a grant to study their status... but only if you're a NANFA
The North American Native Fishes Association (NANFA) sponsors a cash awards
program to support research relating to the conservation of North Americas
indigenous fish fauna. NANFA wishes to support research that contributes to
the sustainable existence of North American natives fishes, especially those
that are imperiled. Such a grant could be awarded to someone in academia, a
conservation group, or to an independent researcher. The maximum award for
any proposal recommended by our review panel will be $1,300. Previous awards
have gone to the following proposals: to study body color communication in
darters; to study displacement of greenback cutthroat trout by nonnative
brook trout; and to study the blind cave catfish Prietella phreatophila.
For complete application information, go to
and download the .pdf for the Conservation Research Grants Program.
Applications are due January 20, 2004. Please contact Bruce Stallsmith at
