Seeing we are having a discussion regarding the Fish-Sci list, in my role as one of the three current list administrators (along with Pete Hagen and Steve Gutreuter), I want to discuss something that I hope will be of interest to some of you.
Recently, I feel that a lot of discussion of the things we are interested in as scientists/professional fishy people has moved off mailing lists towards more accessible and rapid forms of communication such as Twitter. In some associated fields, mailing lists have started using Twitter to extend the exposure of the list objectives and posts and I think there is scope in doing this with Fish-Sci.
I am a moderate Twitter user, but it has proved to be very useful personally, e.g. opening a series of research collaborations, and I have seen students become aware of positions/opportunities that normally they would not have been aware of. Although I understand some people's unease with it, I think it is a useful medium for communication. For sure, there is a lot of stuff out there that is of interest to list members.
With this thought in mind, I have set up a Fish-Sci twitter account (@FishSci) that will be managed by myself (on behalf of the Fish-Sci list). The aim of the account is to post summaries of key posts from the list (jobs, debates, key new papers) as well as highlighting other things that might be of interest to the membership of the Fish-Sci list. There is no aim to speak for the list in debates etc., only to follow the aims of the FishSci list.
So, if you are a Twitter user, please follow us at @[log in to unmask] 
Best Regards
Chris Harrod (list co-administrator)
