We Thank Eric Bodrock for His Presentation on Peru
The attendees of the first in-person GAAS meeting since March 2020 were treated to an excellent collecting trip presentation by Eric Bodrock. He recounted his trip with Regina to the Madre de Dios region of Peru in search of Catfish, Tetras, Cichlids, and Killifish. He also brought some interesting catfish to share at the mini-auction. The Club is very grateful for our friendship with Eric. Click here to see Eric’s Bio.
Below are pictures taken at the July meeting—the club’s first meeting since March 2020.
