IFOCAS was born out of many hours of heated discussion and debate among top aquarists worldwide. Some of the people that took part in this prenatal discussion have been aquarists for many decades, some are not yet aquarists at all but have a keen interest in becoming proficient in this field. In general terms the malaise within the aquatic hobby community was recognized - this has basically been caused by two major factors. Firstly, lifestyles have changed since the heady days of full membership books and heavily attended shows of two or three decades ago and, secondly; the majority of clubs and societies have not even attempted to adapt to the change - most have now perished and this loses forever all of the experience accumulated by their members which can no longer be passed on to future generations.
