...I think i am only up to the talks day on my forum accounting. Much more happened afterwards but i am unsure if i will continue the story due to seemingly lack of response on the forum....
Casper - I really hope that you continue sharing your experiences. Although I haven't provided the feedback that I should have, your stories have definitely helped me imagine what it would have been like to be there in person (which unfortunately I wasn't) and provided the encouragement for me to continue to figure out how to make it to future NANFA events outside of my own area. Your stories, both on the forum and in the American Currents, are always very enjoyable so please keep sharing and I will try to be more verbal with my appreciation.

I also agree that this past issue was a particularly good one.

I'm pretty proud of what we've accomplished with AC, and I have high hopes that it will continue to grow and improve with each issue.
What is required, however, is for members (and acquaintances recruited by members) to keep providing us with the articles, photos, art, and other content that really makes it great. Show us what you've got!
So: if you hear of some interesting research on native fishes, consider contacting the researcher(s) or asking Fritz or Konrad to do so. If you meet someone in the native fish field--and I include in this not only scientists, but also fishing guides, artists, writers, photographers, activists, and anyone else with interesting experiences with or perspectives on native fishes. There is also the great--and largely untapped--world of undergrad and graduate students who are full of wonder and energy for the field and need practice writing for publication.
I have a hunch that many scientists doing fish-related research probably also have side interests and projects that they'd be happy to share in a relatively small scale publication like AC, even if their main work is destined for mainstream journals.
Get out there, NANFans, and find us more content.
AND: sit down and write that thing you've had in the back of your mind. Draw that picture. Find those photos you took. What are you waiting for?
