APPENDIX E
Summary of the Activities of EIFAC Since its last Session by G. Leynaud, Chairman of EIFAC

Before starting the work of the Thirteenth Session of the EIFAC, I should like to give you a rapid outline of our Commission's activities during the period since the Twelfth Session held in Budapest, Hungary, in 1982, particularly as regards the follow-up to the recommendations made at that Session.

First, though, I have to give you the sad news that two of our colleagues have died:

I would ask you to observe one minute's silence to honour the memory of these two experts, who made a valuable contribution to the work of our Commission.

I should now like to review rapidly the activities carried out by the various Sub-Commissions since EIFAC's last session.

Sub-Commission I

The Working Party on Stock Enhancement set up in conformity with the recommendations adopted following the Symposium on Stock Enhancement in the Management of Freshwater Fisheries, held in Budapest in 1982, met in Hamburg from 16 to 19 May 1983 under the chairmanship of Professor K. Tiews. Its report, which includes a draft code of practice, is submitted to the Session in Document EIFAC/XIII/84/2.

Working Party on Fishing Gear Selectivity

The Working Party has met here under the chairmanship of Mr Dahm, and its report will be submitted to Sub-Commission I this afternoon.

Working Party on Crayfish

This Working Party met in Rome under the chairmanship of Mr Westman. Its report constitutes Document No. 7 of this Session. The Working Party has also met during this Session.

Working Party on Eel

Two meetings have been held, in 1982 in Salzburg and in 1983 in Drottningholm, under the chairmanship of Mr McGrath. The reports are submitted under numbers 4 and 5 of this Session.

Possibility of the Establishment of a Working Party on Eel and Crayfish Culture

This point is on the agenda for this Session. The Commission could take advantage of the exchanges of views that have taken place in this connection here in Aarhus.

Survey on the Human Aspects of Recreational Fishing

Mr Steinmetz has brought a small Working Party together in Aarhus and will be able to tell us the situation regarding this matter.

Experiments in Hydroacoustic Fish Sampling Methods on Lake Constance

These experiments were conducted from 23 to 29 October 1983. A report, not yet finalized, has been prepared by Messrs Dahm, Hartmann, Lindem and Loëffler.

In addition a meeting of the Steering Committee of the Intercalibration Exercise on Fish Sampling Methods was held in Hamburg on 27 and 28 March this year. The report of this meeting constitutes Document No. 9 of this Session.

Species Synopses

Mr Deelder has informed the Secretariat that his revised synopsis on eel is nearing completion, and Mr Raap has also practically completed the synopsis on pike.

Ageing of Coarse Fish

Two reports will be submitted to the Session by Mr Steinmetz (EIFAC/XIII/84/Inf. 5 and Inf. 6). In addition, a Working Party has met in Aarhus and its report will be submitted to Sub-Commission I this afternoon.

Sub-Commission II

COPLAKE Programme - Prophylactic Measures Applicable in Fish Farming

A technical consultation was held in Berne from 3 to 5 May 1983 under the chairmanship of Mr Fijan and is the subject of Document No. 6 for this Session.

The future of this activity within the framework of EIFAC will be discussed during this Session (item 5.2 of the provisional agenda)

Assessment of the Quality of Fry and Fingerlings Intended for Aquaculture or Restocking

A report on this item will be prepared during 1985.

Standardization of Aquaculture Terminology

The Commission should take a position on this matter, which does not appear to interest a majority of Member States.

Economics of Small-scale Aquaculture

It is still planned to hold a meeting on this subject in Stirling in 1984. Mr Muir will be able to give us precise information in this connection.

Priorities to be Given to the Activities of Sub-Commission II

The Chairman of Sub-Commission II, Mr Huisman, has studied the replies to the questionnaire and prepared a report (Document No. 12) whose conclusions it will be interesting to consider in Sub-Commission II.

Control of Bird Predators

Mr Bungenberg de Jong has prepared the report distributed as Document No. 13.

Fish Transportation

Mr Berka kindly offered to prepare a review of publications on this subject; since he is here at this Session, he will be able to tell us himself how the work is progressing.

Sub-Commission III

Working Party on Fish Farm Effluents

The Working Party met here on 22 May 1984, under the chairmanship of Mr Alabaster and its report will be submitted in Sub-Commission III.

International Programme of Research on the Various Types of Feed Used in Fish Farming and Their Effects on Pollution

The approaches made by the Chairman of EIFAC to the EEC to obtain financing for this programme have so far proved unfruitful.

Working Party on Water Quality Criteria for European Freshwater Fish

The Working Party was convened in London on 26 and 27 January 1984 by Mr Calamari. The report appearing as No. 16 will be presented by Mr Lloyd.

Updating of Document No. 16

Mr Lloyd has received a certain number of replies and will give his comments on this matter.

Working Party on Fish Toxicity Testing

In accordance with the recommendation of the Twelfth Session, the Secretariat has published a revised version of Technical Document No. 24.

Matters Concerning All the Sub-Commissions Country Reports

The Commission should make a decision on the continuance and presentation of these documents, in view of the number of countries that fail to send them in time for printing and distribution.

Next Symposium

Delegations are invited to reflect on topics that could form the subject of the next Symposium and to make proposals.

Publications Issued

The report of the Symposium on Stock Enhancement in the Management of Freshwater Fisheries was published in 1983, in English and French, as Technical Paper 42 and the documents presented at the Symposium have been published in 1984 as Technical Paper 42 (Suppl.)

The report on EIFAC Experiments on Pelagic Fish Stock Assessment by Acoustic Methods in Lake Konnevesi, Finland, was published in 1982 as Occasional Paper No. 14.

The revised report on fish toxicity testing procedures was published in April 1983 as Technical Paper No. 24 Rev. 1.

Water quality criteria for European freshwater fish: report on chromium was published in English and French in 1983 as EIFAC Technical Paper No. 43.

APPENDIX F
Report of the Third Meeting of the Working Party on Fish-Farm Effluents

To Sub-Commissions II and III:

1. The meeting was held on 22 May 1984 in Aarhus and attended by the following members of the Working Party:

J.S. Alabaster (Convenor) (United Kingdom)
H. Leffertstra (Norway)
J.F. Muir (Scotland)
S. Stippl (Germany, Fed.Rep.of)
A. Coche (FAO Technical Secretary)
D. Charbonnier (Secretary of EIFAC)

An apology for absence was received from L. Varadi (Hungary)

2. The meeting was also attended by the following observers:

T. Backiel (Poland)
M. Bohl (Germany, Fed.Rep. of)
L. Bull-Berg (Norway)
S.-A. Carlsson (Sweden)
J. From (Denmark)

3. Following the recommendation made at the Twelfth Session of EIFAC in Budapest, the Working Party has considered information relevant to the control of suspended solids from fish-farms and proposes to report and submit tentative guidelines at the next (fourteenth) Session of EIFAC.

4. Following the recommended extension of its terms of reference to include cage-culture, the Working Party has circulated a questionnaire on cages to all Member States and will prepare a report from the replies that have been received to date. The Working Party welcomes the production of FAO Fisheries Circular No. 714 Revision 1, on The Cultivation of Fish in Cages, and Indexed Bibliography 1965–83, and notes the paucity of information on environmental effects.

5. The Working Party proposes to continue the collection of information relevant to the control of organic and inorganic phosphorus from fish culture operations and to report in due course.

6. Following the recommendation of the Twelfth Session of EIFAC (82/4) the Working Party has drawn up a detailed proposal for an international cooperative programme of research to relate the waste output of fish to food composition. The execution of the programme will depend on the extent to which funding can be secured from the EEC and other international bodies. The Working Party recommends that such funding be pursued by the EIFAC Secretariat.

7. The Working Party has considered the use of therapeutic agents for the prevention, control and treatment of fish disease, and finds no evidence that this is likely to pose serious problems in the near future. The Working Party will, however, continue to keep the subject under review.

8. The Working Party proposes to prepare a short report on chemical methodology for experiments relevant to assessing the environmental effects of fish-farm effluents.

APPENDIX G
Report of the Working Party on the Cooperative Research Programme on Lake Fisheries Management (COPLAKE)

The Working Party met in Aarhus on 26 May 1984. The meeting was attended by 11 participants from five Member States. The progress in COPLAKE activities was reviewed by the Chairman, Mr P. Tuunainen. It was noted that during the intersessional period, there was little or no activity on some items listed in the document EIFAC/80/3. The meeting then discussed what should be done to activate research in areas of interest inadequately covered by working parties and workshops. The Working Party reached the following conclusions:

  1. Status of inland fisheries, especially that of commercial fisheries in the EIFAC Member States, has not been dealt with in recent years by Sub-Commission I. In view of some developments which have lately taken place, namely those in the socio-economics and management of inland fisheries, the meeting of the Working Party recommends to Sub-Commission I to consider a symposium for the EIFAC 1988 Session which would deal with the state of and prospects for inland fisheries, with special reference to commercial fisheries.

  2. It was also felt that more attention should be paid to research on stock assessment methods and population dynamics of freshwater fish species. It was therefore recommended that during the intersessional period a workshop be organized under the umbrella of COPLAKE to deal with these topics.

The Chairman then reported to the meeting on the somewhat slow progress made in compiling and editing the manuscript on inland fisheries institutions and workers in Europe. As agreed at the Twelfth Session of EIFAC, the directory will be published in the EIFAC Occasional Papers series.

APPENDIX H
Report of the Working Party on Selectivity of Inland Water Fishing Gear

The Working Party met in Aarhus on 26 May 1984 under the chairmanship of the Convenor, Mr E. Dahm. Participants from Denmark, Federal Republic of Germany, Finland, Ireland, Norway, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland attended the Session. An agenda covering the following items was adopted:

  1. Opening

  2. Bibliography on existing European literature on selectivity of inland water fishing gear.

  3. Report on the binational experiment on the selectivity of graded gillnet fleets.

  4. Further possible fields of action.

  5. Various matters.

The present status of the collection of references (item 2) was reported and a scheme discussed to provide each reference with a short but comprehensive abstract. This would help to make available to workers on selectivity in other countries at least the essential of publications which were not written in an official EIFAC language.

This was followed by a status report of the present evaluation of data from the binational experiment on the selectivity of graded gillnet feeds for roach and its prospects to further work.

During the following discussion on possible further fields of action, a proposal was deliberated to deal with the selective effects of electrical fish capture devices and another one to investigate and eventually standardize graded fleets of gillnets for the stock assessment of whitefish. Whereas the first proposal did not find sufficient support from other countries for the moment, the second was accepted with interest by Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. An ad hoc group of interested researchers was formed with the aim of setting as soon as possible a programme for this multinational exercise.

As a result of the discussions, the following recommendations were made:

  1. To continue with the compilation of relevant references on inland water fishing gear selectivity and to prepare abstracts of each according to the approved scheme with the aim of publishing this collection in the near future as an EIFAC Occasional Paper.

  2. To continue the evaluation of data on the binational roach selectivity experiment and to prepare a comprehensive report from it at the latest for the next group meeting.

  3. To set up a programme in detail for an international exercise aiming at the development of a non-selective standardized gillnet set for the stock assessment of white fish.

APPENDIX I

II. CONVENOR'S REPORT ON THE ACTIVITIES OF THE WORKING PARTY

6. The Convenor reported on the activities of the Working Party during the intersessional period and on the fourth meeting of the Working Party which was held in Rome, 3–5 April 1983 (EIFAC/XIII/84/7).

7. The main activity has been the collection, checking and updating of the material for the draft reports EIFAC/XII/82/Inf. 4 “Status of Crayfish Stocks and Fisheries in Europe” and EIFAC/XII/82/Inf. 5 “Institutes, Research Workers and Programmes related to Research on Crayfish in Europe”.

III. DRAFT REPORT ON THE STATUS OF CRAYFISH STOCKS AND FISHERIES IN EUROPE

8. Completed questionnaires have been received from the following countries: Austria, Federal Republic of Germany, Greece, Ireland and Italy. Cyprus and Norway have updated the draft report. In all, 18 out of the total of 25 EIFAC Member States have provided the required information. It was agreed that editing of the report should be done before the end of September 1984 by the Convenor and the Secretary. The edited report will be circulated to the members for further comments. It is hoped that the final version will appear as an EIFAC Technical Paper by the end of 1984.

IV. DRAFT REPORT ON INSTITUTES, RESEARCH WORKERS AND PROGRAMMES

9. Sixteen of the EIFAC Member States have now provided the requested information. The meeting agreed that the editing should be done before the end of August 1984 and the report then circulated for possible amendments to those who provided the information. It is hoped to have the report in its final form by the end of September 1984 to be published as an EIFAC Occasional Paper.

V. BIBLIOGRAPHIES ON CRAYFISH IN EUROPE

10. Since the fourth meeting of the Working Party a bibliography of Italian crayfish papers has been prepared by Dr Mancini. In total, nine countries have provided bibliographies (Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden and Yugoslavia). It was agreed that editing should start as soon as possible.

VI. INTRODUCTION OF EXOTIC CRAYFISH SPECIES

11. The meeting strongly felt that this area should be accorded primary importance in the future work of the Working Party. It also stressed that the Code of Practice for introducing exotic species should include crayfish. The Working Party should collect more data on introduction, monitor the situation, carry out cost-benefit studies and risk analyses, and develop guidelines for crayfish introductions. It should also study the research needs.

VII. CRAYFISH CULTURE

12. It was recommended that EIFAC Member States should stimulate research on crayfish culture and that a workshop should be organized to discuss the subject. The workshop should consider both the production of stocking material and production of crayfish for consumption.

VIII. EXTENSION OF THE MEMBERSHIP

13. Dr Mancini from Italy has become a member of the Working Party. Mr Bacalbasa Dobrovici will arrange for a Romanian nomination. Mr Büttiger from Switzerland has resigned due to other commitments.

IX. FUTURE ACTIVITIES

14. Aspects of introduction of exotic crayfish species and the cultivation of crayfish will continue to remain in the focus of the Working Party. Crayfish diseases, currently not on the list of priorities, will be considered again at future meetings.

X. OTHER MATTERS

15. The Working Party was of the opinion that experience already obtained in some EIFAC countries with wild stocks of crayfish, especially that on their biology, ecology, diseases and on exploitation methods, could be utilized by some other Member States in enhancing their crayfish production and in rationalizing their crayfish stock harvesting. Strengthening of the dialogue between individual EIFAC countries would also assist in the transfer of information and lead to a more active collaboration within the EIFAC region.

XI. DATE AND PLACE OF THE NEXT MEETING

16. The next meeting will take place during the IAA (International Association of Astacology) Symposium in Lund, Sweden, 13–15 August 1984.

XII. ADOPTION OF THE REPORT

17. The report of the meeting was adopted on 28 May 1984.

APPENDIX J
Report of the Working Party on the Allocation of Fishery Resources

The Working Party met in Aarhus on 26 May 1984 under the chairmanship of the Convenor, Mr B. Steinmetz. Due to the overlapping of different working parties, the participation was restricted to:

M. Fürst (Sweden)
O. Heikinheimo-Schmid (Finland)
E. Jutila (Finland)
L.J.K. Kleijn (The Netherlands)
G. Leynaud (France)
B. Steinmetz (Convenor, The Netherlands)

The limited number of replies to the questionnaire (EIFAC/XIII/84/8) was discussed with possible future activities.

It was decided in first instance to limit the activities of the Working Party to those aspects which are of direct importance to managers of fish stocks such as catch levels of freshwater fish species in different types of water bodies and wishes and preferences of the users of the fish stocks.

It was recognized that at least in Finland, France, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden and the United Kingdom, such data are already available.

Mrs M. Bninska (Poland), Mr G. Leynaud (France), Mr M. Fürst (Sweden) and Mr B. Steinmetz volunteered to start this inventory. Depending on the outcome, it will be decided if a workshop on this item can be organized. At that time, the possible participation of Northern American countries should be considered.

APPENDIX K
Report of the Working Party on Ageing of Coarse Fish

The Working Party met in Aarhus on 26 May 1984 under the chairmanship of the Convenor, Mr B. Steinmetz. The meeting was attended by the following participants:

T. Backiel (Poland)
R. Berg (Federal Republic of Germany)
J. Dahl (Denmark)
M. Fürst (Sweden)
O. Heikinheimo-Schmid (Finland)
E. Jutila (Finland)
K. Kaatra (Finland)
L.J.K. Kleijn (The Netherlands)
S.J. Linfield (United Kingdom)
R. Müller (Switzerland)
G.V.H. Rasmussen (Denmark)
K. Salorjärvi (Finland)
B. Steinmetz (Convenor, The Netherlands)
J. Willemsen (The Netherlands)
M. Zalewski (Poland)

In general the value of the Working Party was discussed, also in relation to recommendations made during earlier sessions. It was mentioned that the Working Party was established in Belgrade in 1966 and that the field of activities was limited to coarse fish. Activities of high priority were:

The general feeling of the meeting was that:

  1. available material of freshwater fish of known age or material to be expected during the next few years;

  2. priorities in ageing problems with freshwater fish species in different Member States.

It was mentioned that recently such an atlas for 20 marine species was published in the Journal of the Canadian Fisheries Research Board.

It was also mentioned that the North Atlantic Salmon Commission is recently compiling an atlas of the scales of salmon.

The exchange studies described in the paper were shortly discussed. It became clear that ageing faults for bream and rudd from a management point of view were limited, even in a situation when less than the normal information was available. In that way both reports strengthen the value of routine procedures, which from time to time are subject to critical discussions.
