|International Workshop on Factors Contributing to Unsustainainability and Overexploitation in Fisheries|
An international workshop was organized in order to review and assess factors contributing to unsustainability and overexploitation in fisheries. The workshop addressed, inter alia, the following questions: What are the key factors contributing to fisheries unsustainability and overexploitation and how do these factors interact in general and under major fisheries management systems? Which are the priority issues in addressing fisheries unsustainability and overexploitation and what are the best practical approaches to address these factors in order to contribute to responsible fisheries management?
Preliminary considerations were also given to related issues such as how and in what way these factors were addressed in international fisheries instruments and whether the current instruments are sufficient to address these factors.
This document contains the report of the workshop as well as discussion papers prepared for the workshop and notes submitted by participants. This document and, in particular, the conclusions and recommendations adopted by Workshop participants can serve as a basis for further work aimed at improved fisheries management and a more effective implementation of major international fisheries instruments.
