Our July meeting will be Saturday, July 24.  We will be given a tour of the Biota Marine Life Nursery in Fort Lauderdale. 

 

Biota focuses on captive aquaculture of fish, corals and inverts for the aquarium trade and food.  They have locations in Palau, Hawaii, Florida and North Carolina.  Their website is https://www.thebiotagroup.com/ 

 

They do have an online retail sales group as well.  Purchasing from them is an option on this trip.  However, they prefer that all orders be placed online and then picked up the day of the tour.  they will most likely have them packed and ready to go by the time we get there.  They are expecting a shipment of fish that day and will most likely acclimating/putting out the new shipment while we are there.  So, they don't really want us picking stuff out of tanks at the same time.  SO, IF YOU WANT TO BUY, GO TO THE WEBSITE AND PREORDER.

 

Also, since they are working that day, they have requested to keep the group small.  We are tentatively limiting this tour to 12 on a RSVP basis.  If you plan on attending, RSVP your name and the names of anyone else that is in your party in this thread.

 

Tour will begin at 10 am.  We will meet in the parking lot at 9:45 am.

@jdhuyvetter I'm new to this forum, so may have jumped the gun on adding our names to the list incorrectly. We're in spot 10 and 11 (Rachael Johnston). We'd like to RSVP though! 🐠
