Click to hide meeting description

Project Piaba was established to foster an environmentally and socially beneficial ornamental fish trade. The project grew out of a long-term research program that monitored the cardinal tetra, a popular fish for home aquariums, and other ornamental fishes in the Brazilian Amazon.

An annual expedition is part of Project Piaba's long term study of the Amazon fishery for the global home aquarium fish trade. Scott Dowd, Senior Aquarist and Project Piaba Director, and other international specialists, along with Project Piaba's Brazil ground team conduct an expedition each January.

Mike Walsh - Belize: World-Class Reef Diving a Short Flight Away
Click to hide meeting description

Reefs support some of the most diverse and exciting marine life on Earth, but divers need not trek to Australia for world-class reef diving. The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef off the country of Belize, just south of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, is well within range of US flights. Numerous day boats in Belize provide access to this amazing underwater resource, but live-aboard operations offer unlimited dive access to top-quality reef sites with names like Aquarium, Cathedral, Eagle Ray Wall and Tarpon Caves. Join Michael on a photographic journey to these exciting reef locations from the live-aboard Sun Dancer II and witness the “Great Reef” of the Western Hemisphere. In addition to photographs from one week of diving, this presentation documents the adventures of a 30 mile river journey to visit ancient Mayan Ruins.

Mike WalshMike Walsh was certified in 1980 and has since logged over 1400 dives ranging from New England lobster hunts through Cave exploration and Trimix wreck exploration. Mike picked up an underwater camera in 2000 and has not been seen without a camera at any exotic dive location since.

Officer meeting

First Wednesday of every month
Location: Varies

We've recently changed the format of the monthly business meeting. It is now primarily, where the club officers discuss club issues. It is held at a different place each month, usually at a member's house, restaurant or other informal setting.

It is still open to the membership, and is the perfect opportunity to bring up issues directly to the board. if you would like to attend, ask an officer and they'll let you know the location for that month.
