Development of BIMAQUE

The BIMAQUE bibliography is a tribute to much hard work from several researchers working over many years, at first separately, and latterly in conjunction as part of the MARAQUA project.

Brian Munday assembled the first collection of 2692 references, which were published in print only, in 1992. Lisa Owen carried out the second phase which involved updating the collection to March 1996 (4800 references) and converting it from print format to both CD-ROM and online searchable database format.

Concurrently, Mark Costello, of ECOSERVE Ltd, had made a collection of references (1800 references) concerning aquaculture and the environment, with especial attention to sealice.

The amalgamation of the two collections was carried out by Margaret Eleftheriou, with assistance from Chris Emblow and Louise Collier of ECOSERVE and Christos Hapsiades of IMBC. However, the inclusion of new references from the MARAQUA partners, together with many references from the related fields of aquaculture and environmental legislation and regulation, has resulted in a substantial increase in the number of references (6652).

The size of the BIMAQUE bibliography necessitated a complete restructuring and reprogramming of the previous searchable database, a considerable piece of work not foreseen in the MARAQUA amalgamation budget. BIMAQUE is an online bibliography, designed for online searches, using Author, Date,Title, Source and Keyword fields. The extremely varied sources have not been standardised in traditional print notation, mainly because of the disparate formats used by the many contributors involved.
