    The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society is pleased to announce our May GSAS meeting with special Internationally-famous guest speaker Ad Konings! Anyone who's been involved in the Cichlid side of the hobby will instantly recognize Ad, who over the past thirty years has authored and published some of the best books on the fishes of the African Rift Lakes. His photographs and video are famous for always featuring the fish in their native habitats. Ad is also a fierce advocate for the preservation of these fish, starting the Stuart Grant Cichlid Conservation Fund. He is always traveling to the lakes, and as such, his talks are always changing. At this time, we have no idea which talk we will ask him to give, but we can guarantee it will be fascinating!

    The presentation, which is open to the public, will be Tuesday, May 8th, 2018 at 7:30 PM at Seattle Pacific University; Otto Miller Hall; Room 109; West Nickerson Street and 3rd Avenue West.

    Doors will open about 6:30 PM for a 'social hour'; the meeting will start at 7:30 PM.

    After the meeting, join us for our monthly auction and help to support the club that brings us all our these outstanding speakers.

    Hi All,

    Ad Konings is going to do two (2) talks for GSAS!!

    As mentioned in a previous post, Ad Konings will be presenting a talk on the cichlids of the African rift lakes Tuesday May 8th, at our usual location in Otto Miller Hall at Seattle Pacific University.

    However, many members also would like to hear his most recent Lake Tanganyika expedition talk, so Ad has agreed to give a second presentation on Wednesday May 9th at the   This second meeting is just the talk, in a less-formal setting and starting earlier at 6:30. Hope you can join us for one or both of these presentations!

    Ad does not allow videos of his presentations, you will need to attend if you want to hear his talks!
