General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean - GFCM

Working Group on the Black Sea


The Working Group on the Black Sea was created in 2010 as an ad hoc mechanism for scientific work and decision-making for Black Sea riparian States, as the issues at stake in the region necessitated a regionally influential, widely recognized institutional arrangement. WGBS objectives are to provide scientific advice to the GFCM on matters linked to fisheries management and conservation, including biological, social and economic aspects.
