International Pet Community in Mourning

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Alex Ploeg, the Secretary General of the European Pet Organization and Ornamental Fish International.  Alex, his wife Edith, their son Robert and friend were killed in the plane crash which took place Thursday, July 17 over the territory of Ukraine. 

PIJAC Canada worked with Alex on the International Pet Advisory Council.  Alex's area of expertise was aquatics and his numerous interventions at the international level greatly contributed to the preservation and growth of the hobby.  He was well known around the world as a dynamic and engaging speaker.  He will be greatly missed by all.
