We just updated the free sample issue of American Currents you can download
as a PDF from NANFA's website. A lot of readers called this the best issue
ever, so here's your chance to read American Currents if you've never read
it before. It's at:

"I highly recommend joining NANFA if you are not already a member. To my
mind, NANFA represents the best case scenario of hobbyists and scientists
working together. They also publish, what is to my mind, the most well done
club/organization magazine in print."
Shane Linder, Planet Catfish

"AC is a regular, reliable, well-written source of useful and interesting
information on a great variety of fish topics. You don't need to keep
aquaria to appreciate and benefit from its contents."
Gene Helfman, co-author, The Diversity of Fishes

"I eagerly await the arrival of my next issue of American Currents. . . .
>From behavioral and husbandry to distributional and systematic studies, both
the amateur and professional fish enthusiast can find it all. The articles
are well written, informative, and often quite entertaining. It is a great
resource for publishing information not often found or accepted in more
technical journals."
Neil H. Douglas, author, Freshwater Fishes of Louisiana

"American Currents is a must-read for anyone who is interested in native
fishes. The articles are well written, accurate, and highly informative. I
always look forward to my next issue."
Henry W. Robison, co-author, Fishes of Arkansas and Fishes of

"American Currents provides a readily accessible venue for important
information on native fishes that otherwise would go unpublished. The
journal is available to scientists and non-scientists who have bits of
information that are not suitable for peer-reviewed journals but that are
relevant to our understanding of species ecology and behavior and,
ultimately, to the conservation of our natural heritage."
Lawrence M. Page, co-author,
Peterson Field Guide to Freshwater Fishes of North America

"American Currents provides a wealth of information on North American native
fishes written by a wide variety of contributors, from hobbyists to some of
the best-known ichthyologists in the business. It's this cross section of
authors that makes this publication so valuable! Insight from knowledgeable
hobbyists has certainly helped CFI in its work with imperiled fishes."
J.R. Shute, Co-Director,
Conservation Fisheries, Inc.
