Managing inland fisheries

At its Sixth Session (Krakow, Poland, May 1970), the European Inland Fisheries Advisory Commission (EIFAC) endorsed the recommendation of Sub-Commission I at the Fifth Session (Rome, Italy, May 1968) for “a meeting of appropriate experts to pursue the eel study” and directed “that a consultation be organized on eel fishing gear and techniques at Hamburg in October 1970 to be followed by a report on the topic”. The papers presented at the Consultation comprise a valuable source of practical information about eel fishing gear and techniques.
