Has anyone noticed a general decline in the Fish keeping hobby in MN specifically but midwest in general.

Personally I love keeping and selling/trading fry but it seems there are just less hobbiests in general these days. I know summers get busy hopefully it picks back up in in the winter but even little things like attempting to trade fish into stores and they say they dont have room because they are not moving stock.

I've had a very different experience. Everyone, that is LFS and Internet sales, tells me that they're doing more business than ever since the pandemic. Stores are having trouble getting stock and paying more for hobbyist fish.
