Catfish and the Lothian Fishkeepers

Hi Guys,

Its been a while now since we held our last event and I can now announce our the details of our next event. This time round we will be doing something a little different. We will be hosting the Catfish Study Group for the first time up in Scotland. 

The Catfish Study Group have been meeting since the 1970s and what started off with a handful of members, has become a worldwide organisation. The annual CSG convention has become one of the most highly regarded aquatics events in the world. For more details on the CSG check them out here: a short history of the CSG

This particular event will be focussing on the Loricariidae (L-Number plecos) and we will have the honour of listening to two of the top Pleco specialists in the world. 

Julian Dignall & Mark Walters


We will start the show off with Julian at 12.30 with his introduction to L-numbers then Mark will speak about breeding some of our favourite L-number plecos. During the day both Mark and Julian will be happy to answer any questions you have. Feel free to bring along any of your own plecos for discussion too.

We are also going to hold a prize table show for catfish. This is sponsored by Riverside Aquaria who have kindly offered up trophies for the best pleco and best catfish on the day. Julian & Mark have agreed to pick the winners.

Lothian fishkeepers all know that we enjoy our table sales so this event is no exception. We will be having a small table sale through the day. However for this table sale we are going to focus on more of the catfish related products and species.

I am really looking forward to this event and I hope everybody can come along. This time round entry is only 50p and all tables are free to sellers. We are very lucky to be bringing the Catfish Study Group to Scotland and Im sure we will show them just how strong the Scottish Fishkeeping hobby is right now. If we make this event a success, Im confident of bringing even more organisations to Scotland for us to enjoy and grow our knowledge of the hobby even more.

Thanks for reading guys and I hope to see you all there. Your support is vital and without it, events like this just wouldn't be possible. Thank you

bye for now
