Abstract

Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries 12: 111, 2002. 111 This issue of RFBF is devoted to studies, checklists, and new research involving Méxican freshwater fish and fisheries. The special issue represents the completion of a personal goal and fulfillment of an objective to bring important international focus to México’s interesting and little known freshwater fish fauna. The process of assem- bling this issue started at the 80th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists held at the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California Sur, La Paz, B.C.S., México, June, 14–20, 2000. Despite pending publication of Robert Rush Miller’s long awaited book on this topic (see Hendrickson et al.’s dedication to Dr. Miller), several Méxican and U.S. scientists at that meeting expressed a need for a medium for getting Méxican freshwater fisheries work into peer-reviewed scientific journals. There were two apparent barriers to this activity – first the language barrier which prevents many of México’s best scientists from easily publishing in the scientific literature primarily dominated by the English language; and second the fact that despite significant research on México’s marine fisheries resources in the Gulf of California and the Gulf of Mexico, little support (with few
