I'm seeking a bowfin (or two!) in the 6-10 inch range for a zoo exhibit (Wichita, KS), featuring turtles & fish found in the Pascagoula River system. The only commercial supplier of these I've found is Osage Catfisheries, which is currently not selling bowfins due to a research project. Does anyone have any ideas as to where we might secure one? I've simply run out of options online. I know they are currently raised for roe for the caviar trade in LA, but can't track down any hatcheries where this is happening. I also don't have the staff or resources to go fishing out of state...

Anyway, hope this topic is kosher and appreciate any help anyone might be able to offer. Feel free to email me at nnelson AT scz.org
