Fish Watching in the Carolinas -- RALEIGH AQUARIUM SOCIETY -- April 3, 2014.

Wildlife watching is a popular activity, but watching fish in their natural habitats is a bit more challenging than watching birds, dragonflies, or lizards. The air/water interface is a difficult barrier for our eyes, and fish have a vested interest in NOT being conspicuous to animals on land or in the air! In this follow-up to our February program on native fish, Gerald Pottern will review the diversity of freshwater fishes in the Carolinas, their habitats and behaviors, and discuss how and where to observe fish in nature, from shore, kayak, wading, or with mask and snorkel. This talk was originally conceived for a local Audubon Society club, to encourage bird-watchers to take interest in other animals. If you've got an urge to fish-watch, come join the North American Native Fishes Association (NANFA) annual convention in early June, near Linville Falls NC, with three days of field trips to watch, collect, and photograph the many beautiful native fishes of northwestern NC. Also, during April 15-19 wildlife artist Jan Porinchak from NY will be in town visiting family (in Apex), and wants to do some fish outings with us that week.

First Thursdays at NCSU Vet School, 7:30 - 9:30. Program starts about 8:00. From Main Lobby, go downstairs (under the whale) straight through two double doors, and South Theater classroom is on the right. Monthly RAS meetings are FREE and open to everyone. Silent auction and raffle after the program.
