A draft EU-Guinea fisheries partnership agreement was rejected by a small majority in the Fisheries Committee on Thursday, after the Guinean government's use of force led to the deaths of over 100 civilians in Conakry on Monday. The deal would provide €450,000 a year in EU funding to develop Guinea's fisheries sector, and allow EU boats to fish in Guinean waters.

Dr. Len Ishmael, Director General of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), is visiting Finland hosted by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs on 14-15 September. Len Ishmael from St. Lucia leads the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), formed by nine island states in the Eastern Caribbean. Established in 1981, the organisation has developed the cooperation between the member states so that the countries currently have a common Currency Union and central bank, close cooperation between the respective judicial systems, and strivings for closer political collaboration.

The International Collective in Support of Fishworkers (ICSF) has launched a website dedicated to informing and influencing fishing policy reform in the European Union (EU) in favour of small-scale fisheries. The reform of the EU's Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) is a once-in-ten-year event. The current review and reform process is the third such in the entire history of the CFP, created in 1983,and reviewed in 1992 and 2002.

The European Commission is increasingly inclined to ban Atlantic bluefin tuna fishing, thus supporting Monaco's proposal to list the species under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) next March. Highly appreciated by sushi lovers and overfished for years, in Asia, especially in Japan, bluefin tuna prices can fetch up to $100,000 for a single fish. But the EU will not fully commit until its 27 member countries have been consulted on September 21 or before new scientific data emerges in November.

The Seychelles Fishing Boat Owners’ Association’s website is now online. The site was created by the SFA (Seychelles Fishing Authority) with technical support from the CDE. It is a means of promoting the products of Seychelles artisanal fisheries as part of a broader programme to promote all Seychelles fisheries products.

A little-known European Union regulation coming into force January next year could have a major impact on the health of fishing industries in developing countries, according to a new study. The EU is the single largest consumer of fish in the world, accounting for around 40 per cent of global imports. Such is the continent's appetite for aquatic life, the cumulative net fish exports from developing countries now exceed earnings from coffee, bananas and rubber. But near-unfettered access to the European market for developing countries is set to end with the adoption of new legislation to help eradicate illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing practices and ensure the sustainability of worldwide fish stocks. The IUU Regulation - to be implemented from January 2010 - puts in place strict conditions on countries that want to maintain access to the lucrative European market.

In September 2008, the European Commission’s Communication on ‘A European Strategy for Marine and Maritime Research’ took this a stage further by laying out an action plan for better integration of research between the maritime and marine communities in order to address the problems of marine degradation caused by human activities and develop new technologies for sustainable development of maritime activities. This brochure is based on that communication and explains the context behind its creation and some of the proposed actions and initiatives that will be carried outin the coming years.

South Africa’s fishing industry may face increased competition from Namibian fish exports, which could spell disaster for the local industry. Because Namibia has still to sign an Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) with the European Union, which is expected to result in it losing its trade preferences later this year, industry role players have warned that the country is likely to divert most of its exports, currently destined for the European market, to South Africa.

Agriculture in the Bahamas, as a percentage, is roughly 2 percent of GDP. Within the agricultural sector, the fisheries sub-sector has been playing a particularly dynamic role, consistently accounting for more than 75 percent of total agricultural output and with the crawfish industry, yielding anywhere from $60 to $100 million dollars (USD) per year - or on average representing about 85 percent of the value of all fisheries output. For a country with less than 400,000 people and for a sector that employs less than 10,000, country-wide, that is a considerable amount of wealth for persons in the fisheries sector.

This three year project, the implementation of which was completed in December 2008, covers the three ACP countries in the IOC. The total cost of the project is estimated at 5.46 million Euro, 3.5 million of which comes from the 9th EDF while the remainder is paid partly by Reunion and the other IOC member states. The objective of the programme is to establish and test the conditions for regional cooperation in the field of MCS with a view to ensuring sustainable resource management.
