Lawrence Kent

Lawrence Kent works for a charitable foundation fighting hunger and poverty in the developing world. He hails from New Jersey, lives in Seattle, and travels frequently, for his job, to Africa and Asia.

Lawrence takes advantage of his travels to look for interesting tropical fish in places as diverse as Cambodia, Colombia, Uganda, and Benin. He has collected fish in 14 African countries and lived for 10 years in Chad, Burkina Faso, Mauritania, and Egypt.

At home, Lawrence keeps 25 aquaria, many stocked with cichlids he collected abroad (He pays his son $9 a day to feed the fish when he travels.) A regular contributor to the Buntbarsche Bulletin, Tropical Fish Hobbyist, and Cichlid News, Lawrence is fascinated by all types of fish, birds, and reptiles, and the challenge of correctly identifying and breeding them.

At 11:30 AM on Saturday, Lawrence will present “Looking for Fish in Tricky Places: Nigeria and the Congo”.
