Ken Boorman

Originally from Australia and now living in Chatham, Ontario, Ken has kept fish for over 50 years. A good part of this time he has dedicated exclusively to collecting, keeping, and breeding several families of Australian and New Guinea native fishes in his numerous home aquariums. He has been a member of the Australian New Guinea Fishes Association for many years and is currently the North American coordinator for that group. Ken is also President of the Chatham-Kent Aquarium Society and an active member as well as Vice President of the Canadian Association Of Aquarium Clubs. He will be familiar to many people as the person who operates Lisa’s Lair Bookstore and is well-read on most aquarium and terrarium subjects. Ken has made presentations at many Canadian and an increasing number of United States clubs.

CARES is so fortunate to have Ken step up to volunteer his experience and time as a CARES Speaker, one of our CARES Priority List Rainbowfish Coordinators, and he joins our extraordinary team of CARES Specialists!
