KAC is going to organize a collection trip at Sonarpur area on January 16, Saturday next year led by Rohan and Sanam. It will be a day long trip. Whoever interested to go, please write down your names in this thread.

We need
a photography tank (Souvik and Abhirup can bring),
a pH meter or strip (I ll see if someone can measure other water parameters),
few scooping nets / beter jhuri (better if everyone carry their own),
2-3 small fishing hooks and fishing baits (worms) for channa,
some white material to click plants we collect.

The plan is to visit the same places once in winter, once in summer and once during monsoon.

Fishing rod will not be of any use in a collection trip. Get sturdy scooping net.

i thought we can catch Channa with them using worms as baits...as its winter time and getting into waist level water even seems nightmarish... :(

Fishing rod is not so important..we need fishing line and very small hook plus bait. Let the bait drop until the floor once, then bring it to the surface..once the channa bites it, take the bait out..usually the channa holds to the bait. ;)

White background is very important to clearly photograph the plants.
