Max,

I may be heading to Tahoe this weekend and I will attempt to catch some Kokanee.  If I catch some I will attempt to bring them back to the Sacramento area alive.

Thanks Max.  Just starting out with a small system in my lab at US Fish and Wildlife; Space is limited to about 4 ft by 8 feet so my plan is to build on top of a 4 x 8 Aquatic Ecosystems tank following Sylvia's book recommendations which I just ordered.  Saw your bio and realize that you have lots of experience.  Best wishes,

Fred  :D

If you would like to do a course in the bay area on the Peninsula, we would be glad to host you at San Mateo Ecovillage.  I will post the pictures of our project being installed by Eric Maundu soon.  Are you familiar with his work?

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.


Sylvia
