G'day folks

As some you may be aware from earlier discussions on this list the Aquatic
Conservation Network is taking quite a turn relative to how the organisation
was formerly run. The biggest change is that ACN's journal, Aquatic Survival
is going to be produced on the web and will be free and accessible to all. If
you are unfamiliar with our journal there are some old issues archived on the
web via http://www.acn.ca (click on Aquatic Survival). A new editorial team
has been assembled and hopefully will be expanded over time as further
opportunities arise. At present I will be overseeing this operation with Jim
Lawson and Roberta Steele [DSAC plus various aquarium hobby / conservation
affiliations] offering to act as editors / designers / producers etc etc, and
Tom Webster [DSAC] who will be in charge of graphics. We intend on
establishing some regular columns or features such as:

Aquatic Conservation Website Review (by Jay Delong [NANFA])
Conservation Currents: News from North America (by Chris Scharpf [NANFA])
Livebearer News (By Joshua Levy [ALA])

If other people have ideas for regular columns that they would like to
coordinate please let me know and we'll consider it. The frequency that
Aquatic Survival is produced will depend upon article submissions. The only
way this operation will continue is with your support and articles. We will
consider anything relating to conservation and the aquatic environment, either
original or reprinted (with permission). Articles can be submitted
electronically in pretty much any common format to me. Being web based,
colour reproductions are encouraged (with it being best to send original
negatives or slides).

This entire effort is being done largely to promote people's efforts to
conserve our aquatic heritage and to provide an outlet for their results.
Secondly, it is done to continue one of the initial goals of the Aquatic
Conservation Network, the non-commercial exchange of information with as many
folks as possible.

Anything you could contribute to this effort would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
