 Hello  Trevor,
 Thank  you  for  giving  me  an  idea  of  what  to  expect  by  posting  your  images.
 What  kinds  of  nets  did  you  use  to  fish.
 I  have  bought  two  nets  on  ebay,  here  is  one  of  them:
 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260026984993
 Do  you  think  that  it  is  suitable.   I  have  a  long  handle  for  it.
 
 Was  your  fishing  location  pure  fresh  water  or  was  there  some  brackish  element?
 How  did  you  catch  the  shrimp  and  Macrobrachium?
 
 With  the  shrimp  breeding,  is  this  in  freshwater  or  do  you  need  salt  for  the  shrimp  fry  to  develop  and  what  are  the  fry  being  fed  on.
 
 I  am  not  going  to  risk  taking  any  fish  back,  because  of  the  ban  for  liquids  as  hand  luggage,  following  the  bomb  scares  in  London.
 Would  also  need  Vet  certificates.
 
 I  am  just  going  to  do  a  lot  of  photography  at  habitat  site  of  the  fish  that  I  catch.
 
 Hope  to  get  to  Bangalore  one  day  soon.
 
 Look  forward  to  hearing  from  you.
 
 Kind  regards,
 Iggy

 Hi  Iggy,
 There  was  an  article  in  TFH  sometime  back  about  collecting  in  Goa  by  Tony  Pinto.  Madan  might  have  an  idea  of  which  months  issue  it  was  in.  He  did  collect  some  killies  in  that  trip  if  I  remember  right.

 Hi  Iggy,
 Glad  to  be  of  some  help.  Our  location  was  mostly  fresh  water.  We  did  not  have  good  cameras(Mobile  phone  only)  at  the  time  nor  the  type  of  net  you  will  be  using.  The  net  used  was  a  mosquito  net.
   That's  hard  working  ASK  members  Adip  and  Nayak  with  the  Mosquioto  net.
 
 
 
 A  wood  shrimp.
 Although  salt  may  be  good  we  never  used  salt.  The  fry  was  fed  on  Algae  which  they  loved.  The  shrimp  breed  in  completely  fresh  water.  I  am  talking  of  the  Indian  Dwarf  Shrimp  AKA  Rainbow  shrimp.
 
 ASK  memembers  will  join  you  if  you  want  them  to.  The  Map  shows  how  close  we  are  or  will  be.

 Hi  Beta,
 I  am  in  regular  e-mail  touch  with  Tony  Pinto.
 I  did  see  his  article  in  TFH.  Thanks.
 
 Tony  is  off  to  Ghana  collecting  in  October,  to  which  I  was  invited,  but  opted  for  my  Motherland  instead  for  my  first  serious  fish  sampling  trip.   
 It  also  meant  that  my  wife  could  have  a  holiday  with  me  for  the  first  week  if  I  went  to  Goa.   She  has  to  return  to  her  school  in  London  to  teach,  while  I  fish  in  the  second  week.
 Ghana  is  a  rough,  boys  only  type  of  trip  for  two  weeks  with  little  home  comforts.
 
 All  the  best,
 Iggy

 Hello  Aquascapes,
 I  am  going  to  be  fishing  in  Goa  from  the  29th  Oct  to  the  4th  November.
 Gujarat  is  such  a  long  way  away  from  Goa.
 It  is  too  far  to  make  the  trip.
 Perhaps  we  can  meet  when  I  am  in  India  for  longer.
 
 Anyway,  let  me  know  your  plans.
 
 All  the  best,
 Iggy

 Hi  Trevor,
 You  did  well  with  your  mosquito  net.   Bigger  net  =  more  fish?
 I  expect  that  I  will  be  doing  a  lot  of  my  fishing  alone,  hence  a  smaller  net  with  a  long  handle.   Will  also  be  able  to  push  this  net  into  the  vegetation  by  the  banks  where  fish  try  to  hide.
 Ten  years  ago  when  I  spent  a  day  fishing  in  a  stream,  passersby  stopped  to  help.   I  expect  the  same  might  happen  again.   I  caught  4  species  in  an  hour  with  a  tiny  net  in  1995,  as  I  had  gone  unprepared.
 
 I  am  taking  some  small  photographic  tanks  of  my  own  design  with  me  and  my  trusty  Fuji  S7000  digital  camera  that  has  a  good  macro.
 Most  of  the  stuff  I  am  going  to  be  doing  is  photographic.
 I  could  be  shooting  several  hundred  photos  daily  for  14  days.
 Will  download  images  from  camera  to  a  40GB  SmartDisk  FlashTrax  every  night.
 Probably  back  it  up  onto  DVD  as  well  at  IT  shop.
 I  am  also  going  to  have  a  TDS  meter,  pH  meter  with  thermometer  to  record  water  parameters  at  all  the  locations.
 
 Do  I  need  to  be  taking  malaria  tablets  during  October/  November?
 
 Let  me  know  if  you  think  that  there  is  anything  else  I  need.
 
 Just  noted  your  kind  offer  of  ASK  memebers  possibly  joining  me  in  Goa.
 That  would  be  fantastic,  if  possible.
 I  will  be  fishing  from  the  30th  October  to  the  4th  November.
 The  wife  is  with  me  the  previous  week  and  we  are  sight  seeing.
 Look  forward  to  your  suggestions.
 On  this  short  visit,  after  many  years,  I  am  inclined  to  just  focus  on  Goa.
 I  will  hope  to  visit  Bangalore  another  time.
 
 All  the  best,
 Iggy

 Hi  Beta,  
 Thank  you  very  much  for  sending  me  scans  of  Tony's  article.
 Most  helpful.
 I  could  not  find  my  copy  of  TFH  which  is  in  storage.
 Kind  regards,
 Iggy

 Hey  Iggy,  
 
 Just  got  my  Goa  reservations  confirmed.  I  am  going  to  be  staying  in  South  Goa  someplace,  not  goan,  so  don't  know  too  much.  Will  be  in  Goa  between  29th  September  to  2nd  october.  Guess  I  am  not  going  to  be  able  to  catch  up  with  you  there,  but  if  your  planning  to  come  to  Bombay,  then  we  can  definitely  meet  up.  Met  up  with  Scorpiopereira  and  other  fellow  aquarists  in  Bandra  a  couple  of  days  ago  and  they  have  a  good  collection  of  fish  amongst  them.  I  am  mostly  into  loaches.  
 
 I  am  planning  to  catch  some  fish,  but  mostly  for  eating  *YUMMMM!!!!*  Ok,  just  joking.  I  wish  we  were  all  in  Goa  at  the  same  time,  a  fish  expedition  together  would  have  been  fun.  
 
 Hubby  and  I  are  most  likely  to  stay  at  the  heritage  village,  but  plans  aren't  final  yet.  
 
 Meanwhile,  I've  dropped  you  a  PM  Iggy.

 Hello  Clownygirl,
 So  its  just  a  short  trip  to  Goa  for  you  this  time?
 I  will  be  at  the  Duisburg  Discus  Championship,  Germany  at  that  time,  meeting  with  Heiko  Bleher,  Jack  Watley  and  other  interesting  Discus  personalities  from  round  the  globe.
 Then  FBAS  Festival  of  Fishkeeping  weekend,  Hayling  Island,  UK  in  South  England   the  following  weekend.
 Then  Goa,  two  weeks  later.   I  just  can't  wait  to  get  to  Goa!!!
 
 The  seafood  to  eat  in  Goa  is  fantastic,  my  favourite  being  King  Prawns  and  crab.
 Colva  Beach  in  South  Goa   is  absolutely  devine.   I  do  not  know  too  much  about  the  rivers  in  South  Goa,  but  the  hotel  people  should  be  able  to  help  out  and  direct  you  to  a  small  stream.   Since  you  arer  only  going  to  spend  a  day  or  so  fishing,  be  sure  to  take  all  the  stuff  (nets,  bags,  etc)  that  you  need  with  you,  as  you  do  not  want  to  waste   time  looking  for  these  things.  Here  are  some  of  the  species  that  you  might  find  as  suggested  by  Aaron  Lobo,  one  of  my  contacts  in  Goa   "Blackline  Rasbora,  Malabar  Danio,  Garra  gotyla,  two  or  three  species  of  Puntius(barbs),  Indian  Paradise  fish  (Macropodus  cupanus),  two  or  three  interesting  killifish  (Aplocheilus  sp),  catfish  (Clarias,  Heteropneustes,  Mystus,  Ompok)   and  snakeheads  (Channa)".   
 
 Are  you  going  to  be  taking  any  fish  back  to  Mumbai?
 
 Loaches  are  getting  very  popular  here  in  the  UK  and  command  quite  a  high  price  -  600  rupees  each.
 
 Good  to  know  that  you  met  up  with  Scorpionpereira  and  his  group.   Would  certainly  like  to  meet  up  with  you  and  the  rest  of  the  Bombay  Aquarists,  some  day  soon  hopefully.
 
 Talk  to  you  soon.
 
 Kind  regards,
 Iggy

 Mangalore  is  not  far  behind  in  seafood.  A  dish  I  prepared  there  after  buying  prawns  by  the  basket  in  an  auction  from  the  fishermens  wharf.   Drinking  Bangalore  is  expensive  Sad  .  All  the  best.  Hope  you  have  a  fantastic  fun  filled  trip.  Thumb Up

 Hello  Trevor,
 That  prawn  dish  looks  absolutely  scrumptious!!
 I  also  like  the  malt  whiskey  behind  the  dish,  although  perhaps  beer  might  go  better  with  it.
 I  will  have  to  come  to  visit  you  one  day  soon.
 
 Are  you  based  in  Manglore?
 
 All  the  best,
 Iggy

Hello  Trevor,
 That  prawn  dish  looks  absolutely  scrumptious!!
 I  also  like  the  malt  whiskey  behind  the  dish,  although  perhaps  beer  might  go  better  with  it.
 I  will  have  to  come  to  visit  you  one  day  soon.
 
 Are  you  based  in  Manglore?
 
 All  the  best,
 Iggy                

 
 I  have  a  house  in  Mangalore  where  I  plan  to  spend  my  retirement  years.  It's  my  native  place.  At  present  I  am  based  in  Bangalore  and  you  are  most  welcome  anytime.

 Loaches  are  very  popular  in  India  as  well.  Bought  my  latest  pair  of  clown  loaches  -  7  inches  each  for  2500  INR  in  India,  so  I  am  assuming  they  must  be  far  more  expensive  in  the  UK.  Trying  really  hard  to  get  them  to  sample  some  wafers  and  pellets  right  now,  before  I  leave  for  my  GOA  trip.  
 
 They  are  absolutely  adorable.  
 
 Enjoy  your  discuss  championship  and  make  sure  you  post  some  nice  pics  online   Very Happy
