The process of broadening the scope and increasing the appeal of the SPC Trochus Bulletin continues.

I have added a new section on "Profiles". I believe it is important to acknowledge the numerous contributions of the country-based indigenous workers in the Asia-Pacific region, especially in the field of community-based management of aquatic resources and other related fisheries management issues. I hope this new section will give the profile of at least one or more new and young researchers and workers in future issues of this bulletin.

In addition to highlighting indigenous involvement in trochus and other shellfish activities, this issue contains an article on the community-based trochus and molluscs hatchery at One Arm Point, Australia. I have also included articles from Asia: one on mollusc meat processing in India, and another on the status of the Sudanese trochus fishery.

I would like to inform readers that this will be my last issue as editor of the Trochus Bulletin. I believe I have placed the bulletin in a strong position for future expansion. The broadening of the bulletin to include other shellfish, wider coverage to include Asia, inclusion of new sections on community involvement, and profiling workers in the Asia-Pacific region will strengthen the bulletin considerably in years to come.

It is sad to leave something that I have enjoyed doing for the past three years. However, I am pleased to be passing the job to a well-established researcher based in the Pacific. Beginning with the next issue, Dr Warwick Nash from the WorldFish Center at SPC in Noumea will take over from me as the new editor of the SPC Trochus Bulletin. I am confident the bulletin will be in safe hands. Please join me in welcoming Warwick to the bulletin and I hope all readers will support him by sending news and articles for incorporation in the coming issues of the Bulletin.

Once again, thank you to all who have supported my work with the bulletin.
