To list members with an interest in zebrafish behavior and husbandry:

I would like to take a moment to make you aware of a very interesting
talk being presented in Boston on Tuesday (September 19th from 1-2PM)
of next week.  Carl Smith and Rowena Spence from the University of
Leicester (UK) will be presenting some of their work on zebrafish
behavior and ecology to the New England Zebrafish Husbandry Association
(NEZHA) from 1-2 PM at Massachusetts General Hospital.

This is an excellent (and rare) opportunity to hear a talk given by
folks whom have actually studied these animals in the wild.  For those
of you within reasonable driving distance from Boston, it would be well
worth the trip.  The official announcement is below.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be glad to
answer them.

Best wishes,
