It provides useful and reliable data as an essential source of information on fisheries and aquaculture in the region and a key tool to support decision-making and monitor progress towards the goals set by the GFCM.
The event will consist of a brief presentation of key data and findings, with comments from select speakers from the region, followed by a Q&A session open to all participants.
