Jennifer O. Reynolds has worked as a Senior Biologist in the public aquarium industry for over a decade. Her lifelong passion for fish has resulted in her broad range of experience with many aspects of the industry, including underwater fieldwork in Lake Tanganyika, breeding rare tropical stingrays, opening new aquarium exhibits, and working with wolf eel aquaculture. As an avid photographer and writer, she has published a number of articles in popular aquarium literature including Aquarium Fish International, Cichlid News, and Amazonas, and contributed to several scientific manuscripts.
Freshwater Stingrays in the Wild and in the Aquarium
Learn more about the natural history of South America’s Freshwater Stingrays (Potamotrygonidae), and how to successfully maintain them in aquariums. Jennifer will discuss evolution, biology, captive husbandry (including tank sizes and dietary needs), and provides tips and tricks for dealing with picky or delicate rays, including newborn pups. The talk finishes with a case study of the rare successful reproduction of Tiger Stingrays (Potamotrygon tigrina) under Jennifer’s care.
