About the Inter­na­tional Meet­ing :

The Inter­na­tional Meet­ing was started as a tra­di­tion in sep­tem­ber 2015, and has been held every sec­ond year after. This is the 3th Inter­na­tional Meeting.

As a mostly net-​based com­mu­nity and net­work, this is a great oppor­tu­nity to meet in per­son, with each other, and with the peo­ple and insti­tu­tions with which we cooperate.

This time, we are very for­tu­nate to be able to hold the meet­ing in the facil­i­ties of Chester Zoo, — this has become pos­si­ble because of the enthu­si­asm and support

from, in par­tic­u­lar the Aquar­ium Depart­ment, Andrea Swat­man (team­leader) and Steven Chester. (teammember)

In 2016 we were con­tacted by Chester Zoo, and became informed about their work on the Island Project, which included areas in South East

Asia, where also parosphromenus species are found.

Chester Zoo has shown an inter­est and a strong sup­port in the work of the Project, and has for a cou­ple of years had a fan­tas­tic dis­play tank rep­re­sent­ing species of South East

Asia, among these more than 100 Parosphromenus linkei. These p. linkei were all bred by Chester Zoo.

Very sadly, this tank was destroyed in the recent fire, and a lot of great work was lost. We are glad to know that Chester Zoo still has paros, and still is

ded­i­cated to con­tinue keep­ing the species, tak­ing part in breed­ings pro­gram and work on rebuild­ing their desplay of Parosphromenus species.

The Parosphromenus Project sees the coop­er­a­tion with insti­tu­tions such as Chester Zoo, as extremely impor­tant in our work towards knowl­edge and conservation.

This Inter­na­tional Meet­ing is the first out­side of Ger­many, and it includes a full day of pre­sen­ta­tions, but also the pos­si­bil­i­ties to meet socially, talk and get to know each other.

We will have din­ner together at a local pub, and sun­day we have the oppor­tu­nity to come behind the scenes of the Aquar­ium depart­ment, as well as enjoy­ing a relax­ing day at

Chester Zoo.
