MAINTENANCE  PROJECT 1. Each member agrees to maintain one or more species/populations after his own choice for a period of two years. 2. The member can choose to publish the species maintained in an open list (i.e. the name of the member is known to the other members of the group) or a closed list (i.e. the name of the member is known to the list facilitator only). SPECIES LIST There will be two lists: Each member can, at his discretion include all or any the species from his open list in a “fish & eggs” list for exchange only. The members maintaining species in the ‘open’ list will be known to all other members. The members maintaining species in the ‘closed’ list will be known only to the coordinator. 2-3 times each year, each member will be asked by the coordinator for his species list (the species he has at the moment). The members is not obliged to supply other members with fish or eggs from the open list. On the other hand, as the spreading of a species is a major objective, any member is free to ask another member whether he can spare fish or eggs of species from the open list. GENERAL: A record of species on the open list and a record of the total number of members keeping each species is accessible to all members on the NMG web-page. A distribution list about the Maintenance Group will be created for members correspondence. Information and records about techniques for maintaining the Nothobranchius species can be created. The coordinator undertakes not to divulge details of members whose fish are on the ‘closed’ list. DISTRIBUTION LIST E-MAIL Independently of the maintenance project you can register on the NMG distribution list for everything related to the Nothobranchius.
