Fish Forum 2018
10-14 December 2018
FAO headquarters, Rome, Italy
Bringing together the wider community of scientists and experts working on fisheries and the marine environment in the Mediterranean and Black Sea in order to build a lasting network, discuss advancements in research, integrate scientific knowledge in support of decision-making and identify research priorities for the coming decade.
The Fish Forum 2018 is a key activity of the mid-term strategy (2017-2020) towards the sustainability of Mediterranean and Black Sea fisheries, adopted as Resolution GFCM/40/2016/2. The importance of this event was also recalled in the Malta MedFish4Ever Declaration (30, March 2017) where the reinforcement of scientific knowledge was stressed.
The Fish Forum 2018, the first event of its kind in the Mediterranean and Black Sea region, will encompass oceanographic, social science and economic perspectives on fisheries research. It will therefore review leading work that has been carried out, while also addressing the pillars for the development of fisheries science. It will also take stock of progress made mainly towards achieving UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14, on the conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources, as well as other intrinsically interrelated SDGs, such as SDG 5 on gender equality, SDG 8 on decent work and economic growth and SDG 13 on climate action.
