Mike Drawdy over at Imperial Tropicals (www.imperialtropicals.com) in Lakeland, Florida, announced earlier today that their company is headed to South America on an excursion to learn more about the local fish from that region.
“Imperial Tropicals is going on a trip to South America next week to learn more about the fish that come from that region, like the Hypostomus Luteus. We are going to spend 9 days traveling in Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina and meeting with the local fisherman. The picture you see, is of the Iguazu waterfalls and is where the Amazon drains in the bottom of South America. We will be taking lots of video and pictures and learning as much about the biotope in that part of the world. This is a dream trip for us.”
