Hatchery Operations of Goliad Farms
Charles began his fish-keeping career about age 7 (lots of years ago) when he won some goldfish at a carnival. After raising them, he successfully spawned more and was hooked on fish forever. Shortly after the success with goldfish, he turned his attention to livebearers, the first of which were locally collected Gambusia affinis, mosquito fish, and Poecilia latipinna, sailfin molly. By junior high he had graduated to fancy guppies. His fascination with livebearers continues today. Although his family hatchery (www.goliadfarms.com) breeds many other fishes, it’s the development of new livebearer strains and the improvement of existing strains that occupies his best efforts.
Charles has spoken to aquarium clubs across the country on various topics relating to the hobby. He has a BSc in Zoology from The University of Texas at Austin.
