Working on details for a May collecting trip to Florida.
Leave after the meeting on Saturday to arrive in Tampa on Sunday, 5 May 2019 with visits on Monday and/or Tuesday to a small independent fish farm; a manufacturer of ornamental fish shipping bags; and an industry leader for wholesale ornamental fish, supplying pet stores, public aquariums, and research institutions. Monday evening we attend the Tampa Bay Aquarium Society meeting. After several days collecting and visiting aquarium related destinations in the Tampa area travel down the west coast of Florida stopping at a few locations en route to the Miami area. While in the Miami area we visit one of the nation's leading producers of aquarium plants.
We will have notable local guides accompany us during this trip.
This is an at cost trip, pay as you go. Estimate at least $1,000 per person double occupancy, single occupancy will be about $500 more. I'm willing to drive van to Florida - best with no more than four plus gear in the van. If more are interested we will have to recruit someone else with a van/SUV to haul four plus gear.
