COFI Declaration for Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture

06/04/2021

Celebrating the FAO Code of Conduct, Acknowledging the Achievements and Securing a Sustainable Future

In February 2021, FAO country members endorsed the COFI Declaration for Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture at the 34th Session of the Committee on Fisheries (COFI 34) in the context of the High-Level event to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries.

The COFI Declaration for Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture is the result of an extensive consultative process to acknowledge the achievements of the fisheries and aquaculture sector since the endorsement of the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries in 1995 and to gather collective momentum in tackling the challenges and opportunities to secure the long-term sustainability of the sector.
