Work on a second edition of the celebrated CIESM Atlas on Exotic Fishes has started. Many changes have been observed in the Mediterranean ichtyofauna since the publication of our first edition in 2002, which called for the writing of a fully revised volume with numerous new entries. The photo captures the launching meeting of the authors (from left Drs Lidia Orsi-Relini, Daniel Golani, Enric Massuti, Jakov Dulcic and Ernesto Azzurro) invited for discussions to CIESM offices in Paris by the Director General and book editor Dr Frederic Briand (right).

Our 41th Congress was held in Kiel at the kind invitation of the German Government
