On July 9, 2013, I received a call from Tim Mann of Friendly Aquaponics, Inc., regarding a regional aquaponics meeting that was to take place on Rarotonga, in the Cook Islands.   He was invited to give a keynote presentation at that meeting, but due to a scheduling conflict, was unable to attend.  He asked that I take his place, partly because my site was located on a sand dune in a hot, dry, windy place on Maui similar to many of the Pacific island locations, and I accepted.

Later, a copy of the announcement originally sent out by Richard Mann, Deputy Director General of the SPC, was received, the header of which began as follows:
“TO:    Representatives of Governments and Administrations of SPC Member Countries and Territories
SUBJECT:    SPC AQUACULTURE EXPERT CONSULTATION: Aquaponics for the Pacific islands region: review of opportunities and constraints. 23 – 27 September 2013, Rarotonga, Cook Islands…”
