5 th International Aquarium Congress
Monaco, November 20-25, 2000

First announcement

The First International Aquarium Congress, held in Monaco in 1960, has
become a key event in Aquariology, by defining the first basic
principles of a modern scientific discipline. Subsequently, the meetings
of Monaco in 1988, Boston in 1993 and Tokyo in 1996 led to further
specifying the role of aquariums and measuring the extent of their
scientific, technical and educational development.
At the last plenary meeting at the 4th International Congress in Tokyo,
the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco was chosen to organize the next
congress in the year 2000. Thus, the 5th International Aquarium Congress
will take place in Monaco from November 20 to 25, 2000, under the High
Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Rainier III of Monaco.
We hope you will honor us by participating in this important event. We
strongly feel that you, as a specialist or professional involved with
public aquariums on all levels, or as a scientist working in a research
centre or in a fish farm, can surely contribute to this undertaking by
presenting the results of your work or participating in the discussions
with the representatives of the profession from all over the world
brought together on this occasion.
After consultation with the members of the Scientific Committee, the
general theme for the 5th IAC around which we would like to structure
the discussion with all the participants will be:

“The aquarium, a new link between Man and Nature
in the search for authenticity”

We are convinced that the 5th International Aquarium Congress will open
new opportunities for Aquariology in the 21st century and we count very
much on your active participation and collaboration.
