The Royal Museum for Central Africa (RMCA) is part of the FishBase Consortium and responsible for the fresh- and brackish water fishes of Africa. FishBase is currently the most important online encyclopaedia on fishes and incorporates also many tools for ichthyologists and fisheries biologists.
Through an agreement with the Belgian Development Cooperation and as part of the FishBase programme, the RMCA (Ichthyology) has five grants available for a training program in the use of FishBase and the taxonomy of African fishes. The Fishbase training session 2014 will be held in French from 3 March until 23 May 2014. You can apply until 14 November 2013.
