During the recent regional workshop organised in the context of the project on fish biodiversity conservation in West African Wetlands a new association of people with an interest in West African fish has been launched. Participants of the workshop, took the opportunity to gather for formative meetings "in the corridors of this workshop". In these meetings, the major objectives and organisational aspects of the association were resolved. Wetlands International warmly welcomes this initiative and has offered secretarial support to the association for the formative period. Secondly, Wetlands International has promised to make efforts raising funds for activities in the induction period. Future developments in the field of fish biodiversity conservation to be employed by Wetlands International will have to build strongly on this new developing network of fish and fisheries experts in the region.
