We will discuss the properties of the extended GC system in the core of the Fornax galaxy cluster, revealed by the FDS survey. The spatial distribution and the correspondence with other photometric and kinematical tracers points toward a rich population of intra-cluster GCs. The asymmetric density structure suggests that the galaxies in the core of the Fornax cluster experienced a lively
history of interactions. We will discuss the already published preliminary results and present the improved analysis allowed by the recent completion of the survey.
