Asia-Pacific Fishery Commission technical webinar series 2021


The Asia-Pacific Fishery Commission (APFIC) works to improve understanding, awareness and cooperation in fisheries issues in the Asia-Pacific region, acts as a Regional Consultative Forum that works in partnership with other regional organizations and arrangements and members. It provides advice, coordinates activities and acts as an information broker to increase knowledge of fisheries and aquaculture in the Asia Pacific region to underpin decision making.

In partnership with INFOFISH, the APFIC Secretariat has developed a technical webinar series, based on the work programme and the priorities of APFIC, as a replacement for the traditional face to face Regional Consultative Forum Meeting that could not be convened in 2020 due to Covid-19 pandemic. These webinars will be opened to registered participants from APFIC member countries, regional fisheries organizations, NGO/CSO and private sector participants with interest in the fisheries and aquaculture sectors in the region.

The main format will be technical presentations, but there will also be feedback and panel discussions by invited guests from regional organizations and member countries.


The first webinar is scheduled to start on 28th January 2021 at 14.00 hours Bangkok time (UTC +7).    All interested participants can also register for other webinars in the series here: http://infofish.org/APFIC/index.php/
