RFMOs to discuss how to maximise efficiency

How do Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs) need to manage fisheries to maximize efficiency and sustainability across the world's oceans? European Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Maria Damanaki will soon host a day event in Brussels (1st June, 2012) to discuss this issue. "RFMOs play a key role for sustainable fisheries management worldwide. Dialogue and networking events such as the one I am hosting […] are essential to move our sustainability agenda forward on the international stage", she says.
For the first time, representatives, chairs and executive secretaries from 15 RFMOs stretching from the North Atlantic to the South Antarctic and from the Indian Ocean to the West Pacific will be brought together. According to the European Commission Press service, this event is part of the EU commitment to promote responsible fishing outside European waters. The debate will focus on issues such as the need for better data and enhanced science as well as better compliance with agreed rules to fight illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. Other essential elements such as the need to adopt proper conservation measures for sustainable stock levels and capacity building for developing countries will also be discussed.

The event is to  take place at the Charlemagne building and will be webstreamed.
