  A Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) training course was given by the Service to National Commission for the Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity (CONABIO) in coordination with the Faculty of Biological Sciences of the University of Nuevo Leon and the Institute of Biology at the National University of Mexico.  This was an opportunity for the Service to exchange ideas with other scientists and government officers to share information and to develop HACCP planning to prevent the spread of invasive species in Mexico.  The 44 participants included Bob Pitman (Region 2 Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator), Dr. John Galvez (South Florida Fisheries Resource Office Project Leader), Stewart Jacks (Arizona Fisheries Resource Office Project Leader), Dr. Dave Britton (Assistant Region 2 Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator) and Ernesto Reyes (Corpus Christi Ecological Services Field Office - Alamo Suboffice Fish and Widlife Biologist) Dr. Pablo Gonzalez (University of Arizona), twelve Directors and Assistant Directors from Mexico government agencies, twenty nine professors and Department Directors from several different Mexico universities and three representatives from CONABIO.  A representative from the U.S. consulate in Mexico City also attended during the last day of the meeting.
