This year the Perth Cichlid Society has organised another international guest speaker. On Tuesday, March 6th, 2018, we will have Tanganyikan and West African guru and awesome photographer Adrian Indermaur deliver some talks. This will be on our regular meeting night for March at Atwell College which is located at 201 Brenchley Drive, Atwell, WA 6167. It should be a fun packed evening with raffles, food and drinks and a chance to chat Adrian and with like minded aquarium fans. Listen to Adrian's stories about travelling Lake Tanganyika and other areas photographing and collecting data  on different species.

 

Tickets to the evening are available online from our Event Brite page or via the PCS club by Paypal. You can also buy tickets from club meeting for cash. Tickets are only $12 for the evening and include food and drink. There will be some great prizes available on the night, so don't miss out!

Adrian Indermaur was born 1984 in a remote countryside village in Switzerland. This environment sparked an early interest in nature and its processes, which led him to the study of biology. He finished in spring 2014 handing in his dissertation on ecological and phylo-geographic aspects of Lake Tanganyika cichlid assemblages. Today he works permanently as head of fish facility at the University of Basel, Switzerland. His brother had introduced Adrian to the aquarium hobby in 1996 keeping Betta spp. and finally a pair of Pelvicachromis pulcher. Ever since cichlids of all kind have never lost their fascination and during his travels in Nicaragua,Costa Rica, Panama, Egypt and so forth, he would always have an eye open for the colorful fish. In the framework of his job he took part in several sampling trips to Lake Tanganyika (Zambia, Tanzania and Burundi) as well as the Crater Lakes and rivers of Cameroon during the last 8 years. Further to this, Adrian is an author for the Cichlid Room Companion and has recently started to publish articles in popular magazines.

 

Adrian is a PhD student of biology at the University of Basel (CH), working on ecological aspects of cichlid evolution. His focus groups are mainly cichlids from Lake Tanganyika. He began keeping fish at the young age of 12 and has been on and off ever since. A particular interest for cichlids has always been there, but has been strongly enforced since he started his scientific work around the group of the Tropheini from Lake Tanganyika. At the moment he is taking care of approximately 120 tanks with several different tanganyikan species. In the last years he has participated in several sampling trips to Africa (Lake Tanganyika) and Central America (Nicaragua, Costa Rica), where he gained quite some experience with cichlids in their natural habitat.

Adrian is responsible for the supervision, organization and development of the University of Basel animal facility including the execution and permission of animal experiments as well as the build up and maintenance of the fish specimen collection. Also he is involved in preparation and assistance of the University field-work in Zambia and Cameroon.

 

In addition to the above duties, Adrian is involved in different research projects in the Salzburger Lab – an particularly in CICHLID~X – dealing with various topics such as genomics, ecological divergence, phylo-geography and taxonomy.

It was a great talk and I enjoyed the science stuff. A huge thanks to the PCS committee for all the arrangements, behind the scenes operations and thankless jobs that go into organising an event like this.

Me and the wife enjoyed the night, especially the personal stories (the pelican etc) and the science. A big thanks for the committee for arranging it all and a big thanks to Adrian for doing the talk. Hope you have fun in the eastern states and rub in the PCS shirt ;-P

After this talk I had a very quick chat to Adrian about (what else) west african riverine cichlids and he mentioned something that the great man Anton was talking to me about a couple of years ago. I didn't realise that Adrian was the guy Anton was talking about. I really enjoyed the talk, and the genome sequencing, carbon testing, relation between the jaw and head shape and where on the food chain they sit was very interesting to me. I'll try and keep in touch with him as I'm really interested in what he was chatting about. Plenty of photos and lots to talk about. 3 hours just wasn't enough. I was thinkning about the talk when I went to bed last night and didnt get to sleep for ages. Appreciate the PCS crew organising this. Thanks guys!
