Meaning of Naga
The Naga is an underwater creature from Asian mythology. Superior to humans, it inhabits sub-aquatic paradises, living at the bottoms of rivers, lakes and seas in resplendent palaces studded with gems and pearls. It is the keeper of the life-energy that is stored in the waters of springs, wells and ponds. It is also the guardian of the riches of the seas – corals, shells and pearls. Naga represents the very focus of WorldFish Center, namely, protecting the wealth and productivity of tropical waters.

How to access Naga
Beginning in 2001, the full text of Naga will be made available on the internet. The Naga is distributed free of charge by surface mail to institutions associated with fisheries and aquaculture in developing countries and members of the Network of the Tropical Aquaculture and Fisheries Professionals. However, readers are recommended to request airmail delivery for US$20 per year (subject to change without prior notice), since surface mail can take several months. Payment for airmail delivery should be in US dollars by bankdraft or check from a US-based bank payable to ICLARM. Click here to order.

Naga is distributed to over 5,500 recipients in 159 countries.
