    This document presents the final report of the seventieth session of the Executive Committee of the Asia-Pacific Fishery Commission (APFIC) convened in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 23 to 25 August 2005. The APFIC Executive Committee's main function is to direct the conduct of business and affairs of the Commission between its biennial sessions. Major topics discussed at the session were: progress reports on the intersessional activities of APFIC; regional response to the tsunami; regional fishery bodies in Asia and the Pacific; outcomes of the trash fish and co-management workshops; and preparations for the regional consultative forum meeting and the twenty-ninth session of APFIC. The Committee reiterated that the main focus of APFIC's activities during the next biennium would remain small-scale fisheries and rural aquaculture, which would be pursued through partnerships with competent regional organizations. It was also agreed that the emerging need for an additional focus on fisheries trade and food safety (for both aquaculture and capture fisheries) would be brought into an expanded portfolio of activities for APFIC. A summary of the main recommendations and decisions are included in the session report.

    食料安全保障と貧困撲滅の文脈において 持続可能な小規模漁業を保障するための任意 自発的ガイドライン 2018
    The Voluntary Guidelines for Securing Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries in the Context of Food Security and Poverty Eradication (the SSF Guidelines) is the first internationally agreed instrument dedicated entirely to the immensely important - but until now often neglected – small-scale fisheries sector. The SSF Guidelines are the result of a bottom-up participatory development process based on the recommendations of the Twenty-ninth and Thirtieth Sessions of the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI). They were approved by COFI in 2014. The SSF Guidelines have been developed as a complement to the 1995 FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (the Code). They were developed to provide complementary guidance with respect to small-scale fisheries in support of the overall principles and provisions of the Code. Accordingly, the Guidelines are intended to support the visibility, recognition and enhancement of the already important role of small-scale fisheries and to contribute to global and national efforts towards the eradication of hunger and poverty. The Guidelines support responsible fisheries and sustainable social and economic development for the benefit of current and future generations, with an emphasis on smallscale fishers and fish workers and related activities and including vulnerable and marginalized people, promoting a human rightsbased approach.
