Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2002 - Business & Economics - 173 pages
This international workshop was organized in order to review and assess factors contributing to unsustainability and overexploitation in fisheries. The workshop addressed, inter alia: the key factors contributing to fisheries unsustainability and overexploitation and how these factors interact in general and under major fisheries management systems; the priority issues in addressing fisheries unsustainability and overexploitation; and the best practical approaches to address these factors in order to contribute to respnsible fisheries management. Preliminary consideration was also given to related issues such as how and in what way these factors were addressed in international fisheries instruments and whether or not the current instruments are sufficient to address these factors.
