The Thirty-fourth Session of the Committee on Fisheries (COFI) that was planned to take place at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy from 13 to 17 July 2020 has been postponed to a later date to be announced in due time.

The Committee on Fisheries (COFI), a subsidiary body of the FAO Council, was established by the FAO Conference at its Thirteenth Session in 1965.

The Committee presently constitutes the only global inter-governmental forum where major international fisheries and aquaculture problems and issues are examined and recommendations addressed to governments, regional fishery bodies, NGOs, fishworkers, FAO and international community, periodically on a world-wide basis.

COFI has also been used as a forum in which global agreements and non-binding instruments were negotiated. [more...]
