RECOFI-FIRMS Data call Workshop

03/08/2021-04/08/2021

The existing RECOFI-FIRMS fisheries inventories contribute to the understanding of the structure of the exploitation of fishery resources and of the management context. Fisheries inventories can contribute to the understanding of the state of resources by describing profiles and trends of the exploitation of fishery resources and by providing a knowledge backbone for management decisions.

The Commission also acknowledged the benefits of developing FIRMS Stocks inventory of regional relevance for the RECOFI region and recommended the initiation of the process focusing on the Spanish mackerel and shrimps as priority species.  

This 2-days session's agenda involves presentations by FAO experts on the current status of fisheries in the NENA region and will welcome feedback from member countries on the way forward.
