ACP fisheries meeting in Fiji

Managing sustainable fisheries resources will be the main agenda at the 3rd African, Carribean and Pacific (ACP) Fisheries Ministers’ meeting hosted by the Fijian Government in Nadi on June 18 and 19.
A statement from Government says that the 100 delegates or so from the ACP region will focus on the regional management of fish stocks apart from other issues pertaining to fisheries.
Also in the agenda will be discussions on population and nutrition future outlook with regards to food security, optimising returns from fishing, aquaculture and mariculture. Government’s acceptance to host the meeting has been hailed by the ACP.
Secretary-General, Dr Mohamed Ibu Chambas; who said, “the contribution of the Government of the Republic of Fiji in convening this important meeting is highly appreciated.” Meanwhile, the meeting will also finalise the consideration of a five-year strategic plan of action for fisheries and aquaculture in the ACP region.
At their second meeting in November 2010, which took place in Mahe, Seychelles, fisheries ministers of the ACP States adopted a resolution addressing climate change and illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, among other issues.
In the resolution, ACP fisheries ministers: recognised the growing importance of aquaculture in meeting the increased world demand for fish protein in an environment of depleted fisheries resources resulting from overfishing, climate change, pollution and habitat destruction; expressed concern over the threat and impacts of climate change on the fisheries and aquaculture sectors; and recognised that the identification and implementation of appropriate adaptation and mitigation measures would represent a high cost for vulnerable states.
