This is the second issue of the Trochus Information Bulletin that incorporates news on other molluscs and shellfish. I have tried to further broaden the scope of the bulletin by inviting more readers from Asia and the Asia-Pacific region to contribute articles.

Another change to the bulletin is the inclusion of many pictures on activities and contributions from the Asia-Pacific region. As an information bulletin, I believe pictures are in many ways much better for conveying activities and ideas to readers.

In this issue I have highlighted indigenous involvement in trochus and other aquaculture activities. The Kimberley Aquaculture Aboriginal Corporation is a success story that I would like to see happen in Pacific Island countries.

Also described in this issue is ACIAR funding for another three-year project on trochus in the Pacific involving Australia, Samoa and Vanuatu. This phase of the project involves communities, customary marine tenure, and the establishment of marine protected areas. The outcomes of the project will be of particular interest to Pacific Island nations.

Finally, in this issue, I have included an article each from the Philippines, Malaysia and Israel. I welcome more contributions from the Asia region.
