Goal and Objectives of the Workshop

The goal of the Workshop was to develop a clearer regional understanding of the status of low value/trash fish and the issues relating to these fish in the Asia-Pacific region. This included quantifying, to the extent possible, the current trends and status of trash fish. Based on the regional review of the current status and trends of low value/trash fish production and utilization, the Workshop discussed strategies to address the identified issues and design action-oriented outputs to implement the strategies at national, subregional and regional levels.

Recognizing that one of the significant uses of low/value trash fish in the region is for animal feeds and in particular its increasing demand for use as aquaculture feeds, the Workshop paid special attention to the implications for aquaculture and its development in the region.
