Hi Members and Friends of CCA Northern Virginia – 


On Tuesday, April 7th we will have a chapter meeting with Guest speaker, John Odenkirk, Fisheries Biologist from Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries(VDGIF)


John has a BS in Fisheries from VA Tech, and a MS in Fisheries from TN Tech. He worked with sturgeon and striped bass for the USFWS in Florida before returning home to manage a district for the VDGIF. Northern snakeheads landed in his lap in May 2004, and he has been investigating the introduction ever since.  John will be speaking to our group about a variety of topics in our local area.
