Neat article on our streams, their aquatic inhabitants, what's threatening them and what's being done about it by a group of conservationists and captive breeding programs. Glad to see that our freshwater biodiversity is being looked after and cared for.

Hey Chris. Being a newer member, you may not be aware of CFI and the excellent relationship NANFA has with them, but yep, that's who this article is about. Thanks for sharing it. I would encourage you and all to check out their website. https://www.conservationfisheries.org/Great organization!

Hi Matt,

 

Thanks for the link! Glad that NANFA and CFI are connected. The Nat Geo article was neat and I thought others might enjoy it like I did.

 

Thanks again.

 

Chris

In 1998 CFI's Pat and JR were a featured speakers at the NANFA convention here in Chattanooga.

I just finished printing 300 decals for them for their 2 upcoming events.

Last night the film Hidden Rivers was screened in Knoxville, TN to a sold old crowd, a fundraising event for CFI.

NANFA has awarded $1000. to CFI.

An employee of CFI is on NANFA's BoD.

Also comes to mind an article was written about CFI a few years ago in American Currents, i authored that with interviews from both Pat and JR.

At the Kentucky NANFA convention CFI founders spoke.

 

Proudly NANFA has a long history with CFI.

 

As for the National Geographic article, which i subscribe to and have long enjoyed, there were 2 separate issues that had CFI articles.

Both lacked the stunning insitu photos that you will find on this forum.
