GSA - Guidelines for Sustainable Aquaculture

The Pacific and the Caribbean Regional Consultation


Forth regional consultation along the process for the development of the Guidelines for Sustainable Aquaculture (GSA), a practical guidance to government authorities and policymakers in their efforts of promoting the implementation of CCRF, and enabling aquaculture to effectively participate in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The event, organized by the Fisheries Division (NFI), and funded by the Korea Maritime Institute of the Republic of Korea (KMI) and the Korea’s Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries (MOF), will take place in virtual mode from 23 to 25 February 2021, 21:00–24:00 (CET).

After African, Asian and Latin American regional consultations, the upcoming virtual event will bring together experts from the Small Island Developments States (SIDS) from the Pacific and Caribbean areas.
The objectives of the consultation are:

  • Share current policies and practices related to aquaculture in the region to inform GSA, currently under development by the FAO Secretariat.
  • Review existing regional sustainable aquaculture guidance that has been developed and assess if there are gaps that the GSA could help fill.
  • Develop a list of priority thematic modules, both those of regional strength and those that are regional challenges.
  • Propose case studies from the Pacific and the Caribbean countries.
