February 13: Lawrence Kent

Posted on Wed, 24 Jan 2018 by Erik

Join us for a lively meeting February 13, 7:30 (social time at 6:30) at our usual meeting location at SPU, with Monthly auction to follow.

Our guest speaker is Lawrence Kent, who we're lucky enough to call our own! For his day job, Lawrence works for the Gates Foundation, traveling around the world (notably Africa and Southeast Asia). But he also manages to take time in those travels to discover and collect tropical fish in the local habitats.

At home, he raises and spawns them in his basement fishroom of 25 or so tanks---You can see this in our 2014 home show (though most of the fish are now different as he moves on to new species challenges!). Lawrence is one of the top participants in the C.A.R.E.S. program (both for GSAS and the country). He has written articles for the big national magazines, and has spoken at several big conventions.

Each one of Lawrence's presentations has been new and unique, and it has been a few years since we last had him speak for GSAS, so we are very excited to have him back. His latest talk is titled How a Cichlid Guy got into Labyrinths.
