Cambodian Aquarium Fish
Sponsored by Tropiquarium
On Thursday May 19th NJAS is proud to have the fascinating and enlightening Dr. Anthony Mazeroll, direct from the Golden State, to present "Cambodian Aquarium Fish." This presentation is sponsored by Tropiquarium, a fine aquarium shop on State Route 35 in Asbury Park, NJ.
Dr. Mazeroll received his Ph.D. from Northern Arizona University in the field of zoology. His research was on the daily migratory behavior of coral-reef fish in the Red Sea. After graduating, he continued to work in the Red Sea and was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to Jordan in 1999. Dr, Mazeroll was a professor of Biology at West Texas A&M University 8 years. He has been at Soka University of America in Aliso Viejo, CA since 2002. At Soka, Dr. Mazeroll teaches courses in Sustainable Aquaculture, Fish Biology, Aquatic Conservation, Freshwater Biology, Alien Invaders, and Marine Biology. He began working in the Amazon in 2004 and continues today where his research centers on the impacts of invasive species on the aquatic ecosystem. As a hobby, he has been breeding and raising tropical freshwater fishes for over 40 years.
Following the program and discussion there will be an auction of fish, plants, and dry goods from local hobbyists and shops, many rare and hard-to-find. Doors open 7:30 PM and feature a door prize, raffles, sales table, Breeder & Grower Award Programs, and a Plant, Fish, and Sponsor of the Month. Meet and greet hobbyists from around the region! Quality Inn Meadowlands, 10 Polito Avenue, Lyndhurst, NJ (just off the Rt.17 / Rt.3 Junction, not far from the Lincoln Tunnel and NJ Turnpike. NYC Express Bus stop across street). All are welcome!
