        Dear Graham
        I hope everything goes well in Aberdeen and I was
        glad to know that your proposal was funded by FAIR. We
        did not have the same luck with our proposal on
        reproduction abd there are no prospects for funding in cephalopods
        for the next year (or more ...). Nevertheles, I had
        a national project (PRAXIS XXI) funded and I will return to
        the ichthyology for the next three years.
        I would like to ask your help on the following subject:
        I have a MsC student working in a local park with
        dolphins (T. truncatus) that is going to study the role
        of the feeding regime on the growth and condition of
        several animals (8). These animals are observed at regular
        intervals and samples of urine, blood and feces are colected
        on a montlhy basis. My question is: is it possible to use
        the blood samples to extract the RNA and DNA to use the
        respective ratios? Do you know any information that might
        have been published on this subject or anyone that is
        (or has) working in this subject?
        We are now trying to collect as much information as possible
        but my feeling (from preliminary searches) is that the information
        is limited.
        I look forward for your news on this subject.
        I will leave next friday to spent the Christmas and new year in
        I wish a good Christmas season and a happy 1997.
        Best regards
        J. Pedro Andrade
