Re: Discussion on Mexican fish

Hello All,

I too think that a comprehensive view of what is North America should
include Mexico and Canada, and in addition the Greater Antilles Islands
(Lee, et. al.).  However, this is not the NANFA list, this is the NANF list.
Wiegert was the one to found the NANF list, and as the creator, I believe
that he has the right to define the parameters of discussion.
