Nice to see so many interested people turning up for the collection trip. will be waiting for the updates and photos.

With my limited knowledge of collection trips and biotope study, a few tips,

1. Don't jump into unknown water bodies. Even if you are a good swimmer.
2. You will find most of the fishes in knee deep water or even less. So dont have to always get your feet wet. Your presence will scare the fishes.
3. Get few sturdy fishing nets with metal handle. One with bigger holes and another with finer one.
4. A good waterproof sandal is must. Look for those fake crocs. They come with a harder soles. It will protect you from broken glasses and thorns.
5. Carry few test kits like NO3, kH, gH, pH meter and TDS meter if possible
6. Carry a lot of plastic bags and rubber bands if you want to carry the catch back home.
7. One should carry a first aid box.
Regards,
Tirtha

Requesting Sanam to discuss about the spots / probable options.

We need to come up with a well co-ordinated plan by Thursday (e.g. when to start, where to meet, stuffs we require, who would be carrying what, backup plans, lunch / snacks arrangements etc).

Location is Near Rajpur Kalitola, Sonarpur. How to reach there, will be communicated shortly. Most probably we might be meeting at Sonarpur Railway Junction to move ahead together. We have to check the transport availability yet so will be updating on dat shortly.
for the time being, get excited with be pic of the spot below ;)
I am hoping to get lots of surprises....
Reason for Choosing this place- This place is chosen for the reason that its known to change drastically over the seasons and some species are known to be found only during some months of the year.... :D
