Third SPC Regional Technical Meeting on Costal Fisheries (5–8 Nov.)

 

The RTMCF3 overarching theme is to discuss and address some of the main technical issues affecting coastal fisheries and aquaculture in support of better science-based resource management, equitable access to resources and the safety of fishers. The Forum Leaders have tasked SPC to coordinate with National Fisheries Agencies, CROP agencies and regional and national community groups, to strengthen support and resourcing for coastal fisheries management. Better data on coastal fisheries management will also allow countries to report against indicators under the Sustainable Development Goal 14 on Oceans.

Policy Brief on small-scale tuna fisheries
