Zanzibar IAMSLIC Conference

We are missing Lenora who is always so good about documenting what is happening at IAMSLIC conferences. People are still trickling in, many reporting travel adventures both good and bad. Cancelled flights and 12 hour layovers in the Nairobi airport challenged some attendees. For others who had long layovers, the airline put them up in a nice hotel and gave them free meals.

Yesterday we had a nice tour of Stonetown which included visiting old underground slave holding cells, a walk through the central market and shopping district, and time in the museum which once was the highest building in Africa and affords nice views of the city.

We return to our hotel and had time to refresh and dress up for the wonderful reception Edna has arranged with plenty of great food, drinks, and a DJ playing music for dancing. There are photos somewhere documenting me in long pants and a tie as I dresses to meet the Tanzanian dignitaries who were a no-show (family illness).

Today we get to work.

Proceedings of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute

The 64th Proceedings of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute will be available for distribution in October. As I do each year, this is to announce to IAMSLIC member institutions that the 64th Proceedings of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute will be available. Many IAMSLIC libraries have had on-going subscriptions to the Proceedings, but I feel it prudent to ask if they would like to receive the current volume.

As in the past, the subscription rate is $US90.00 which includes postage and handling (domestic and international). An electronic version (CD) of the Proceedings is included with the hard copy.

If the library affirms their interest by contacting me (LeRoy Creswell, creswell@ufl.edu), I will send them the GCFI Proceedings and CD, along with an invoice. Alternatively, they can simply place an order online at the GCFI website (www.gcfi.org).

Kind regards,
LeRoy Creswell
Executive Secretary, GCFI, Inc.
