    The Expert Consultation on International Fish Trade and Food Security met in Casablanca, Morocco, from 27 to 30 January 2003. After review and assessment of the issue, the consultation recommended to: a) conduct a background study on the normative framework for fish trade and food security; b) organize a consultative process on the normative framework; c) prepare technical guidelines on the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, fish trade and food security; d) train and improve capacity of policy-makers and technical personnel on international issues dealing with fish trade and food security; e) integrate the fish trade and food security issues into the proposed “FAO Technical Cooperation Project – WTO”; f) expand FAO work on the distribution of costs and benefits in the fishing industry; g) prepare an analytical framework taking into account conflicting interests with specific illustrative cases studies; h) conduct studies on the impact of fish trade on hous ehold food security; i) develop medium- and long-term projections on the impact of fish trade on food security. In this respect: a) gender aspects and marginalized groups should be taken into account; b) FAO Fisheries Department should continue to seek further synergies through collaboration with other FAO departments and other competent international agencies (e.g. International Food Policy Research Institute and World Fish Centre); c) FAO should disseminate widely the results of th e work programme, including to the private sector using the FISHINFO network, which was recognized as an important tool for this purpose; and d) promote regional trade for food security.

    An Expert Consultation on Interactions between Sea Turtles and Fisheries within an Ecosystem Context was convened by FAO and held in Rome, Italy, from 9 to 12 March 2004. The meeting was attended by 11 experts from seven countries, covering expertise related to sea turtle biology and conservation, fishing gear technology, fisheries management and socio-economics. The Expert Consultation was organized to provide technical input to the Technical Consultation to take place in Bangkok, T hailand, later in 2004, as agreed at the twenty-fifth session of the Committee on Fisheries, held in Rome, Italy, from 24 to 28 February 2003. This document includes all the contributions prepared by the participating experts as background information to the Expert Consultation. The first four papers provide an overview of available information on biology, distribution and main sources of natural and man-induced sea turtle mortality for the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans and the Mediterranean Sea, respectively. Gear technology developments to reduce impacts on sea turtles are reviewed in papers 5 to 7. Special emphasis is given to the Turtle Excluder Devices (TEDs) and mitigation measures in pelagic longline fishing. Management experiences in reducing sea turtle bycatch in coastal fisheries, including implementation of technology standards and area/time closures, are covered by paper 8. Examples of conservation efforts aimed at preserving nesting beach hab itats and at preventing direct take of sea turtles and their eggs are presented for two locations in Indonesia (paper 9). The examples show the importance of community empowerment in the implementation of conservation measures. Finally, paper 10 describes an important case study from the State of Orissa (India).
